The Archbishop of Kolkata, Thomas D’ Souza told AFP News Agency that the Church will be leading a public rally in the city after a 71-year-old Roman Catholic Nun becomes the latest rape victim in India. The elderly nun was apparently gang-raped at her convent school during a robbery attempt.
“We expect three to four thousand people to attend the rally. In fact we have asked all the city parishes to join the rally,” said the Archbishop.
“We also expect common people to participate and express their solidarity to the victim.”
The rally was expected to take place yesterday, Monday, 16th March.
