Supreme Court denies bail to jailed Mother Teresa nun

Light of truth

India’s Supreme Court has rejected bail for a Missionaries of Charity nun arrest-ed and remanded in custody in the eastern State of Jharkhand six months ago on suspicion of child trafficking. The top court turned down the plea from MC Sister Concilia on Jan. 29 on grounds that police had not yet pressed charges in the case. However, the court left the door open for her to file another application and also told the police to file formal charges soon. Sister Concilia, who headed the Nirmal Hriday (tender heart) home for unmarried mothers in Jharkhand’s State capital Ranchi, was initially remanded in judicial custody for 14 days on July 5.
