Following Fr. Luke’s release on bail during the initial proceedings, the Court additionally imposed a restriction forbidding the Priest from being present in the same locality. 

Furthermore, during the latest hearing, a court-appointed expert confirmed the disappearance of Fr. Luke’s laptop, which had been presented in court. Strangely, the laptop had already been examined by the police prior to its court presentation, without any judicial scrutiny.
