Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India]Aug 13 (ANI): Women’s rights activist Brinda Adige has slammed former Kerala MP PC George for his disparaging comments about a rape survivor and says inaction from the leader’s party led to his arrogant behavior.
“His statement is not only derogatory but shameful. It implies that the rape survivor took advantage of it and got more films. It is appalling. He is an incorrigible person because this is not the first time that he does,” Adige told ANI.
She further called out George for his arrogance.
“The responsibility lies with the party leaders because they never arrested him. His impunity and arrogance continue because he knows he has nothing to lose. The police have not registered any cases either,” said she added.
Earlier, former MP PC George, who was released on bail in a sexual assault case, raised a serious allegation against Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday demanding an investigation by the Directorate of law enforcement over his involvement in dealings with businessman Pharis Aboobacker.
Speaking to the media, George said that the Chief Minister’s daughter Veena Vijayan’s company ‘Exalogic’ is involved in selling the data of people in the state and that Pinarayi Vijayan’s frequent visit to the United United is also questionable. Therefore, it must be studied by the ED.
George was released on bail by the Trivandrum court with strict orders after a three hour hearing.
He was released on bail on the condition that he cooperate with the investigation and not influence the complainant and appear before the investigator every Saturday.
On Saturday, the plaintiff alleged that George misbehaved with her when she was called in for a discussion on the Kerala gold smuggling case at the government guest house in Thiruvananthapuram.
Museum police have filed a complaint against former MPP George for sexual harassment and outrageous modesty. The plaintiff is also charged in a solar fraud case.
Case registered under articles 354 of the CPI (assault or criminal violence against a woman with the intention of outraging her modesty) and 354 A.
She gave a 164 statement to Museum police on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. Within an hour, museum police arrested him under IPC Sections 354 and 354A and later granted him bail. (ANI)
