Kerala Church sex scandal: Sc asks two clergyman to surrender
The court was earlier informed that two of the accused had surrendered, while two were before the court seeking anticipatory bail in the case.
The counsel for victim alleged that some videos were uploaded by the accused on the Internet and they used the same to blackmail her.
The clergymen had moved the apex court seeking anticipatory bail in the case after their plea was rejected by the Kerala High Court on July 11.
The Crime Branch of the Kerala Police had on July 2 registered a case against Father Varghese and three other priests on the basis of a statement given by the woman belonging to the same church who accused them of sexually assaulting her on many occasions.
