Karnataka sex scandal: Arrest warrant issued against JDS MP Prajwal Revanna

Story highlights

Earlier in the day, Janata Dal (Secular) party supremo Deve Gowda broke his silence over the charges levelled against Revanna and stated that he has no objection if action is taken against his grandson in case he is found guilty.

In a significant development, a court has issued an arrest warrant against Prajwal Revanna on Saturday (May 18), who is the main accused in the Karnataka sex video scandal. 

The JDS MP from Hassan has been absconding after allegations of serious sexual harassment were levelled against him.

The move came following an application by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that was formed to investigate the matter, as per local media reports.

Revanna did not appear before the team despite being sent a notice.

Earlier in the day, Janata Dal (Secular) party supremo Deve Gowda broke his silence over the charges levelled against Revanna and stated that he has no objection if action is taken against his grandson in case he is found guilty.

He further said that cases against his son and JD(S) MLA H D Revanna were fabricated. HD Revanna is currently facing charges of sexual harassment and kidnap of a woman.

“… I don’t want to comment on things that are going on in the court regarding Revanna. Prajwal Revanna has gone abroad, regarding that Kumaraswamy (Gowda’s other son and state JD(S) chief) has on behalf of our family said it is the duty of the government to take action in accordance with the law of the land,” Gowda said.

“There are several people connected to this (sexual abuse cases), I don’t want to take anyone’s names. Kumaraswamy has said that for those who are involved in this matter, action should be taken against all of them, and the affected women should get justice and compensation.”

“There is no objection from us for taking action against Prajwal. But people have come to know (facts) about the allegations made against Revanna, and how the case has been created. In one case he has got the bail, in another case, there is a judgment the day after tomorrow… I don’t want to comment on it,” he added.

Blue Corner notice issued against Prajwal Revanna

Earlier, Karnataka Home Minister, G Parameshwara said that a Blue Corner notice was issued against Prajwal Revanna.

A blue notice permits Interpol to gather details regarding an individual’s identity, whereabouts, or actions linked to a criminal inquiry.

Parameshwara also said that the state government is requesting Interpol’s help in repatriating Revanna who reportedly is in Germany. He went there on a diplomatic passport.
