Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church has asked five of its priests to ‘go on leave’ after a church member alleged that they sexually exploited his wife for years. The scandal broke out after an audio clip of the husband began circulating on social media last week.

In the audio clip, the man, a resident of Thiruvalla alleges that his wife began facing the abuse even before they were married. However, it took a turn for the worse after she told this to another priest during a confession, which is supposed to be kept a secret.
