The accused priest

Kolkata:A diocesan priest was Monday arrested for molesting a male student in West Bengal.

Fr. James Soren of Krishnagar diocese is the warden of Don Bosco School’s hostel at Sagardihi in the state. He had allegedly sexually molested a 10-year-old student on Wednesday night.

Mrinal Majumdar, additional superintendent of police, said the boy’s father had complained that the priest hadcalled the fifth grader to his room and sexually assaulted him.

The priest was missing since Thursday when the boy student told his parents about the incident.

The boy, who belongs to Raghunathganj in the state, stays in the school’s hostel.

Fr. Soren has been charged under the Indian Penal Code which deals with molestation and carries a maximum punishment of life imprisonment.

The Salesians of Don Bosco had 20 years ago handed over the school to the management of Krishnagar diocese.

The diocesan priests, however, retained the name of the school.

    Can’t say if this is true till the Priest is arrested…
    But why is he missing if he’s not guilty???
    What’s happening to our Catholic Churches these days???
    With no offence or hurt to anyone…but there’s too much sex scandals going on these days in our RC Churches…
    Anyways we all need to pray more for all these Priests…after all the’re human too..
