KOLKATA, INDIA, JULY 01, 2001: A nun from the order founded by Mother Teresa was fined by a court for torturing a 12-year-old girl. Sister Francisca, 70, from the Missionaries of Charity order, admitted to the court in Kolkata on Saturday that she had put a hot knife on the girl's hand because the girl stole a few pieces of bread. The incident happened in June last year at the Mahatma Gandhi Welfare Missionary of Charity school in the city, where the girl was a pupil. The case came to court after the father of the girl lodged a complaint against the order. In a voice choked with emotion, Sister Francisca admitted the crime to the court and was fined US$21.74. The Missionaries of Charity order was set up by Nobel peace laureate Mother Teresa in 1950.
