The police team investigating the case, last month questioned a few Catholic priests and based on their statements, arrested Aditiyan, an engineer.
It was after Aditiyan's custodial interrogation that the police turned towards the two priests for questioning. The police was pushing for the custody but on Tuesday, the Ernakulam Sessions Court granted them bail.
The Cardinal has not yet commented on the case.
