Nun raped in Orissa violence identifies another assailant
CWN - August 02, 2010
The Catholic nun who was sexually assaulted during the burst of mob violence that struck India’s Orissa state in August 2008 has identified four of her assailants. Sister Meena Barwa picked her attackers out of a police line-up, providing positive identification of four men and increasing the likelihood that their trial would produce a conviction.
The trial is taking place in Cuttack, having been transferred from the original court site in Kandhamal because many Christian witnesses, including Sister Barwa, said that they feared reprisals from Hindu mobs there.
