The Kerala High Court has dismissed the bail plea of Roman Catholic Bishop Franco Mulakkal, arrested over allegations of repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting a nun. Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan dismissed the bail plea while accepting the prosecution argument that the accused, holding a high position in society, will try to influence witnesses in the case if granted bail. The court also took note of the submission by the prosecution that the investigation in the case was at a crucial stage and more statements of fellow nuns have to be recorded before the magistrate under Section 164 of the CrPC in connection with the case.

RTI query demands birth certificate of Lord Krishna

An RTI query requesting the authorities to provide the applicant a copy of Lord Krishna’s birth certificate has left officials stumped.

The Public Information Officer, Ramesh Chandra, said it’s difficult to find answers to such questions related to public faith and personal beliefs and therefore, the department is a dilemma.

The RTI applicant, claiming to be from Chhattisgarh, had said in his application, “The country celebrated Krishna Janmashtami on September 3. Please provide a copy of Lord Krishna’s birth certificate to prove he was born on this day.” The applicant also asked the administration to provide evidence to “prove Lord Krishna was really a God”.
