BBC: India – Catholic Church hit by allegations of sexual abuse


The Catholic Church has been hit by allegations of sexual abuse in India, after a nun in the country accused a Bishop of raping her multiple times. He’s been arrested and released on bail, and denies the claims.

There have been concerns raised about the Vatican’s overall handling of numerous sex abuse allegations, and Pope Francis is due to host a conference this week, focusing on how the Church tackles the issue.

The BBC’s Yogita Limaye reports, from the southern Indian state of Kerala.
