Three Church officials including the Archbishop of Bhopal, accused of attempting to poison a fellow priest, were granted anticpatory bail on Thursday.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Sriram Sharma granted bail to Archbishop Leo Cornelio, his vicar general Father Mathew VC and diocesan spokesperson Father Jonhy PJ.

The court case was first registered on February 7 on behalf of Father Anand Muttungal, former archdiocesan spokesperson, who alleged that the three men had conspired to use unnecessary medicines to make him think that he was mentally unbalanced.

Fr Muttungal has claimed that the conspiracy was in response to previous allegations of financial mismanagement that he had brought against the archbishop and others in the archdiocese.
