Controversial Kerala politician P C George on Thursday said the woman actor who was allegedly abducted and sexually assaulted in 2017 had benefited from the incident, as she “got more opportunities” in the film industry after the crime was committed against her.

Addressing the media in Kottayam, George said that the victim is getting offers to act in many films. For her, he claimed, the loss was only in her personal life, “if the incident was true”.

“But following the case, she got more opportunities to act in films. She is the only person who benefited from the case,” George said.

Earlier, months after the incident was reported, George had openly backed Malayalam actor Dileep, who is accused of conspiring the abduction and assault. The former legislator had then said, “It is my responsibility to stand with the truth. It is sad to see that an innocent Dileep had to spend 85 days in jail (judicial custody).”
