One of four Indian priests charged with allegedly raping a woman has handed himself in for police questioning in the southern state of Kerala.

The Kerala high court denied bail to him and two other priests, who are also expected to give themselves up.


The woman, 34, was allegedly raped and blackmailed in exchange for sexual acts.
