HD Revanna Sent To SIT Custody Till May 8 in Karnataka Sex Scandal Case

A day after his arrest, Karnataka JD(S) MLA H D Revanna was sent to four-day police custody on Sunday. Revanna was arrested in a kidnapping case linked to sexual abuse allegations against his son Prajwal.

Bengaluru’s 17 ACMM court sent the JD(S) leader to SIT custody till May 8.

The former minister, who is the son of former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, is facing the charge of kidnapping and illegally confining a woman who is the mother of three children. The complaint was lodged by the woman’s son on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, Holenarasipura MLA called his arrest over the allegations of abducting a woman, whom Revanna’s son is alleged to have sexually abused, an outcome of a political conspiracy.

Revanna claimed there is no evidence of his involvement in the case based on the complaint against him registered on May 2.

“There are no evidences pertaining to the May 2 complaint. It’s a big political conspiracy… A conspiracy was hatched against me,” Revanna told reporters at the Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital, where he was taken for a medical checkup before being produced in court.

The SIT is investigating sexual abuse allegations involving his son and Hassan JD(S) MP Prajwal Revanna, after a huge cache of explicit videos allegedly involving Prajwal sexually abusing several women surfaced in the public domain and were widely shared.

In the complaint of abduction against HD Revanna to the KR Nagar police, the 20-year-old son of the victim alleged that Revanna’s close aide Sathish Babanna had taken his mother away on a motorcycle on April 29, stating that the MLA wanted to see her.

The complainant stated that Babanna told him that if his mother “opened her mouth before the police”, she and her family members would be arrested.
