The 71-year-old nun, who was raped on March 14 by unidentified ‘goons’, is likely to move out of Bengal after being released from the hospital.
Church sources said the Order to which the nun belonged is contemplating to take her to some other state.
Local sisters, Vatican City representatives who came to extend support to the nun and the Convent said they are unanimous on the matter of taking her out of Bengal.
“In missionary life, we do not have retirements. We retire only to God. Our Sister will continue with the work of God in some other place in India for the rest of her life,” said a nun in Ranaghat.
“She is out of danger, but needs more time to recover from the trauma,” said another nun. “Most of the times, she is praying and keeping calm,” she added.
A district administration official said the decision to be released from the hospital has been left to the nun herself.
