The priest raped her while she was alone and also clicked her pictures.
A case in this connection was registered Jan. 23 against the Fr. Fizo Chiramel. No arrest has been made yet.
"We have recorded the statements of both the parties and started investigation after registering a case under sections 376 (rape) and 506(B) (criminal intimidation) of IPC against the Fr. Fizo Chiramel of a church situated at Shyampura," said Upma Singh, in-charge of women police station.
According to the victim, she became nun in 2008 and a year later she was ordained to work at Shyampura church.
The victim, who later gave up her vocation, mustered courage to approach the police after the accused was transferred from Sagar Catholic diocese, she said.
