Kottayam: In a new twist to Suriyanelli gang-rape case, the victim on Friday lodged a police complaint insisting that Rajya Sabha deputy chairman PJ Kurien be made an accused.
The complaint lodged at Chingavanam police station also sought that Dharmarajan, an absconding convict who had jumped bail in the case and was arrested recently from Karnataka, and two other people — Unnikrishnan and Jamal, be also arraigned as accused.
According to the complainant, Dharmarajan had told a television channel that he had accompanied Kurien to Kumily rest house in his car on February 19, 1996 where the victim had been sexually exploited.
The victim and her parents had come to the police station to file the complaint.
The assistant sub-inspector accepted the complaint but refused to register the case saying the sub-inspector was not present, the victim's counsel Anila George said.
She said the victim's plea was to make Kurien an accused. So far, there is no police case or FIR against Kurien.
