A nun representing a reported rape victim of Bishop Franco Mulakkal has accused the defense of evidence tampering in the case and is demanding that the real evidence be presented.
Sister Anupama of the Missionaries of Jesus said in a statement that the tampering was part of a campaign to "sabotage" the case and protect Mulakkal, according to India Today.
She made the accusation after a court in Pala, Kerala found "discrepancies" between copies of cyber forensic evidence submitted by a forensic laboratory and those submitted by police, according to The Times of India.
"If real evidence is not handed over to the police, I will file a complaint against the lab. This is a bid to prolong the trial," Anupama said in her statement.
