Chikkamagaluru, Dec 5: Hundreds of devotees of St Joseph Cathedral came up with many allegations against the Catholic bishop of Chikkamagaluru and met the district police superintendent and submitted a complaint for order an enquiry.
The devotees alleged that the members of the Karnataka Catholic Rakshana Vedike, which is founded by Bishop T Anthony himself is defending all his wrong deeds. Meanwhile, they also alleged that the bishop has also launched a weekly TV named 'Hope' without any discussions with the devotees..
"We are ready to meet the chief minister and submit details about the bishop's misadministration. As per sources, we got information that the bishop is trying to fabricate a sexual harassment story on Fr Antony Pinto and planning to transfer him from the parish. If he transfers Fr Antony Pinto, then we will not allow any other priest into the parish or the bishop himself. The bishop is also following the method of divide and rule policy by dividing people on the basis of language. If proper action is not taken, we will organize a hunger strike,” the devotees stated.
The police accepted the complaint and assured of holding an investigation.
