The Catholic Church in India is only beginning to deal with the kinds of sexual abuse scandals that have rocked the institution elsewhere. A bishop in the state of Kerala has been charged with raping a nun, and other women have come forward with similar complaints.

Alleged victims say the church hierarchy is in denial and nuns have faced reprisals for speaking out. WARNING: This report from South Asia correspondent Siobhan Heanue contains details of abuse.
