New Delhi [India], Jan 29 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed a PIL seeking directions to the Centre and Delhi government to hold a SIT or CBI investigation under the supervision of the court into incidents of sexual abuse of children and nuns allegedly by Catholic clergies.
The court said, “There are no specific allegations in the plea. We are not going to look into it. Kerala matter is before the Supreme Court".
The plea had also sought directions to the Delhi Police to set up clergy abuse Hotline Number so that Catholic churches, sexually abused victims and survivors may come forward to seek justice by registering their grievance and any person may give leads/tips to the law enforcement agency.
The plea also sought directions to churches (dioceses) in the national capital and all over India to display the clergy abuse Hotline Number and email id for the victims. (ANI)
