The Missionaries of Jesus sister has also complained of harassment - including multiple death threats - since going public with her complaint against Mulakkal.

The protesters, including five fellow nuns of the rape survivor, said they would continue their agitation till action was taken against the bishop. "So, they are denying the arrest", a nun said. As they failed to understand even the seriousness of these words, I could not tell them more than this.

Anapura noted that Mulakkal has been targeting her group since they declared support for his accuser, saying the bishop is "trying to coerce a statement against the survivor from us".
