Sister who questioned church on rape accusation is expelled by her community in India

The Franciscan Clarist congregation has expelled Sr. Lucy Kalappura, one of its members who had questioned the official church's indifference to a nun who says a Catholic bishop raped her. The congregation cited other reasons for expelling Kalappura, such as buying a car without getting the required permission from her superiors and violating other rules.
