Actress attack: George's venom spewing gets a bite back as women's panel to register case PC George

Kottayam: Independent legislator P.C. George is not one to be deterred by any threats or warning, even if it's the law that comes calling.

Reacting to reports that the Kerala State Women's Commission planned to file a case against him for making derogatory remarks against the victim in the actress attack case, George said: "If I get the notice, will appear before the commission whenever it's convenient for me."

"The commission don't have the power to sentence anyone to death, rt?" George said.

The Poonjar MLA had made offensive comments against the actress on multiple occasions in television channels and at press meets. George had repeatedly been saying that the actor Dileep was framed in the case. State Women's Commission chairperson M.C. Josephine termed George's comments as 'anti-women.'

"We will request the speaker of Kerala assembly to allow us to question the MLA," she said here on Friday.

Last week, George, who had repeatedly challenged the police version in the case and even sought to cast aspersions on the victim, hit the headlines when he asked how the actress could go to work two days after the attack if she had been tortured as the police claimed to.

George's comments had drawn the ire of the public and women's organizations. Several key personalities had flayed the legislator's statement terming it insensitive and chauvinistic and lacking sensibility.

The Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) sought legal action against George for his 'irresponsible and misogynistic' comments. The women artistes, then, said the legislator's outbursts may be part of a conspiracy to help the accused.
