Karnataka MLA HD Revanna Sent To Special Probe Team Custody For 3 Days


Karnataka MLA HD Revanna, son of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, has been sent to three-day police custody of Special Investigation Team or SIT in connection with a kidnapping case. 

The former minister is facing the charge of kidnapping and illegally confining a woman who is the mother of three children. It is being alleged that the woman who worked in their house was raped allegedly by his son and Hassan MP Prajwal Revanna, who has been suspended by the JDS. 

The SIT is also investigating sexual abuse allegations involving his son 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.

“There is no evidence pertaining to the May 2 complaint. It’s a big political conspiracy… A conspiracy was hatched against me,” Mr Revanna had told reporters. 

In the complaint of kidnapping against H D Revanna to the K R Nagar police, the 20-year-old son of the victim has 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.

Later, the 20-year-old complainant got to know from a friend and relative that his mother was among the women in the cache of videos, and that it showed her being tied up and raped allegedly by Prajwal.

As he expressed fear that his mother was in danger, police arrested Sathish Babanna and secured the victim from a farmhouse.
