The nun speak out after the verdict

In 2008 communal riots broke out in the Kandhamal district of Orrissa between Hindus and Christians.  A Hindu mob shouting anti-chritian slogans burnt the Divya Jyothi Pastor Church, and the following day dragged out the nun and a priest.  They raped the nun with the police watching on and brutalized the priest and threatened to set him on fire for refusing to participate in the rape.

The Cuttak District court on March 14, 2014, convicted 3 of the men men, including main accused Mitu Pattnaik, but due to lack of evidence acquitted 6 of the other men accused  in the 2008 Kandhamal gangrape case of a Catholic nun.
