Kottayam (Kerala): Senior politician P.C. George on Thursday courted yet another controversy by making ‘distasteful’ remarks against the actress, who was abducted and sexually assaulted by a gang in 2017, saying it was she who has benefitted by getting more opportunities in movies, after the incident.
Answering a question during a press meet here, George, known for making controversial remarks in sensational cases, even mocked the use of “survivor” while referring to the case.
“The survivor is getting several films now...I don’t think she suffered any loss after the issue. The loss which she had suffered in life as a woman might be huge, if the said incident was true. But, my belief is that she got benefits in other areas,” the former MLA alleged.
The senior politician also slammed reporters who questioned his unsavoury remarks during the press conference at the press club here.
The former MLA had earlier made alleged distasteful statements against the survivor and openly extended support to actor Dileep, the eighth accused in the case. He was arrested recently in a sexual assault case and over hate speeches against the Muslim community....
