Bengaluru, May 6 A court in Karnataka on Sunday sent JD-S MP HD Revanna, son of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, under Special Investigation Team (SIT) custody till May 8 in the sex video scandal involving his son JD – S MP and NDA candidate Prajwal Revanna.

The SIT produced Revanna before 17th Additional City Magistrate Ravindra Kumar B. Kattimani at his residence in Koramangala locality in Bengaluru as per procedure and sought five days’ custody. A submission was made listing 15 points explaining why he should be questioned by them.

Revanna was arrested on Saturday evening in connection with the kidnapping case of one of the victims of the sex video scandal involving his son.

When the SIT’s counsel sought his custody considering the seriousness of the case, Revanna’s lawyer Muthy D. Naik accused the SIT of torturing his client, who is facing health problems.

The magistrate allowed Revanna to meet his lawyer for an hour and also directed the SIT to make proper food arrangements for him.

Meanwhile, the SIT has set up a helpline for the victims of the sex video scandal.

It said the investigation revealed that there are many more victims and that if the victims and informants need legal protection and assistance, they can contact the helpline (6360938947).

The Karnataka police on Friday registered an FIR against Revanna in connection with the kidnapping of the woman, believed to be one of the victims of the sex video scandal involving his son, after the woman’s son filed a missing complaint accusing him.

His relative Satish Babu was named the second accused in the FIR and was arrested from Mysuru district on Friday.

The woman’s son claimed that his mother went missing after an alleged sex video surfaced of Revanna sexually assaulting her. He also alleged that his mother was locked up in an undisclosed location while pleading with the police to take legal action against Revanna and Satish Babu.

Prajwal Revanna, the sitting JD-S MP from Hassan, has reportedly fled the country.
