SEXUAL ASSAULT
George confused over rape definition

How many attackers should there be for a rape to be called a gang-rape? This is the philosophical question that is on Karnataka Home Minister K J George’s mind these days.

Reporters who sought a response from George on Wednesday in the case of the BPO employee who was allegedly sexually assaulted by two men in a tempo traveller, were surprised at George's remarks. 

Speaking to Times Now and Suvarna News channels, George said: “How is it a gang-rape if two people rape? Shouldn’t there be at least three or four people for it to be called gang rape?”

The police have so far arrested two people – the driver and cleaner of the tempo traveller vehicle for allegedly sexually assaulting the 22-year-old woman. Police have said that the two men are from Kadur in Chikmgalur district and have been in Bengaluru for the last three years.
