Charges Against My Husband Baseless: Kurien's Wife
send via whatsapp
Amid growing clamour for resignation of Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman P J Kurien in the Suryanelli gangrape case, his wife has rubbished the allegations against him and said those hurling "malicious charges" never bothered to appreciate sentiments of her family.

Susan Kurien, a retired high school teacher, said in a statement here that her husband had reached home and they had supper together on the day he was alleged to have abused the victim in a guest house at distant Kumali.

"I am sure that the allegations against my husband are baseless. Myself and my two daughters firmly believe that the truth prevail in this matter," Susan said.

She said her family was deeply pained that Kurien was being haunted through media (by those levelling charges) after a span of 17 years, raising the same allegations which were found baseless by repeated investigations and judicial scrutiny.

"Those who are fighting for women's right should not forget the fact that Prof Kurien too has a family", she said.

Kurien has all along rejected the charge and opposition's demand for his resignation, saying it was a matter which had already been cleared by the Supreme Court.

The girl from Suryanelli in Idukki district was abducted in January 1996 and transported from place to place across Kerala and sexually exploited by different persons.

The victim had sent a letter to the Supreme Court last week, seeking a review of the apex court's order quashing all charges against Kurien.

The sole reason for his aquital from supreme court is said to be the words of some politicians and present NSS chief, who was a chamcha of N. Paniker the previous chief. The supreme court never held any hearings from the victim, I think this is time they do that. Open the case and listen to the girl & the witnesses, what is wrong in that? But kick him out from Rajyasabha if he is not resigning by himself before the trial begins. Mind it no wifes will ever say their Hubby's are bad in the public.

Her loyalty is commendable -

"I am sure that the allegations against my husband are baseless"

What else was Mrs Kurien expected to say? Something on the lines of -

"Why that lying SOB! He told me he had gone to meet his friend while all the time he was out whoring".

That's not going to happen. More to the point is she now providing a fresh alibi to replace those which have been retracted -

"her husband had reached home and they had supper together on the day he was alleged to have abused the victim in a guest house at distant Kumali"?

If you look at the pain inflicted on a woman when she gets gang-raped and thrown to the wolves with no justice of any kind,  I think the "abuse" which a male gender you are quoting and seems to be experiencing, is a 100 times better. 

Anyway my "abuse" pertains to only those men who cannot perform, and not about every male out there...

 How does the wife know? Was she there?

Maybe she knows he cannot perform, and that the reason behind her claim... :-)
