Thrissur (Kerala), May 4 (IANS) A Catholic priest was arrested Sunday after a nine-year-old complained of sexual exploitation, police said.

Raju Kokkan, 44, of the Thrissur Archdiocese was on the run since the last week of April. He was nabbed by a team of police officials near Nagercoil in Tamil Nadu Sunday.

Nagercoil is 70 km from Thiruvananthapuram, the state capital of Kerala.

"He has been arrested and will be presented in court by Monday evening," Thrissur district police chief P. Prakash told IANS.
