Suryanelli: Cong MP calls victim 'child prostitute'
Posted on Mon , 18 Feb '13
Congress MP K Sudhakaran's apathetic comment citing that the Suryanelli rape case victim was in fact a 'child prostitute' has drawn flak from all corners of the political as well as civil fraternity. CPI (M) Polit bureau member, Brinda Karat lashed out at Congress for remaining silent on the highly offensive and shameful comment. NCW Chairperson, Mamta Sharma condemned the comment as well. Sudhakaran had said that the woman who was allegedly raped by 42 men in 40 days in Kerala was a child prostitute. The victim has accused senior Congress leader PJ Kurien of being among her assaulters, a charge he has denied.
