Ranchi, September 27, 2019: The High Court of Jharkhand state on September 27 released on bail Missionaries of Charity Sister Concilia, who arrested and remanded in custody on suspicion of child trafficking.
“We thank the Lord for his goodness to us, appreciate and are grateful to the lawyers and all those who have struggled in the case over the past 15 months,” says a press note from Auxiliary Bishop Theodore Mascarenhas of Ranchi.
Sister Concilia, who headed the Nirmal Hriday (pure heart) home for unmarried mothers in Ranchi, the state capital, was initially remanded in judicial custody for 14 days on July 5.
The 61-year-old nun was arrested along with a staff member at the home following complaints that the staff member accepted money from a childless couple to give them a baby and then failed to do so.
She has since been denied bail three times, even by the Supreme Court, the country’s apex court.
The nun is known to suffer from diabetes.
