Cop Heading Probe Shocked: Acquittal of Bishop Franco Mulakkal from Charges of Rape.

Reacting to the acquittal verdict of Kottayam Additional Session’s Court acquitting Franco Mulakkal, stating “This is a case in which the grain and chaff are inextricably mixed up. It is impossible to separate the grain from the chaff. There are exaggerations and embellishments in the version of the victim”, the former Kottayam SP Harishankar, who headed the probe, said he was totally shocked. All the more because, according to Mr. Harishankar, the police had built a water-tight case against the bishop.
