"He doesn't even know what rape means and that is why he has commented like this. He is another example of a person who comments on violence over women without pondering over it," she said on the sidelines of an event.

Commenting on the alleged sexual assault on a BPO employee by two men in a van, George had said, "How can you say gangrape? Gangrape means four-five people."
