BENGALURU: Karnataka home minister Gangadharaiah Parameshwara announced on Saturday that a second lookout notice has been issued against JD(S) MLA HD Revanna and his son, Prajwal Revanna, in connection with the ongoing investigation into the alleged ‘obscene video‘ case.
“We have issued lookout notices against both HD Revanna and Prajwal Revanna. We had issued a lookout notice to HD Revanna as he may plan to go abroad.But the second notice was given yesterday. They have time until this evening to reply to the notices…” Karnataka Home Minister said while speaking to the media on Saturday.
“Revanna has also applied for bail for the Mysore kidnapping case as well. One person has been arrested in the case,” he added.
Earlier, the Karnataka home minister informed the media about the lookout notice issued against the father-son duo in the case on Thursday. The first lookout notice was issued after the father-son duo sought time to appear before the investigation team.
Meanwhile, HD Revanna has been booked on charges of kidnapping based on a complaint lodged by the son of a woman who allegedly worked as a housemaid at Revanna’s home for six years before returning to her village.
The complainant discovered a video allegedly depicting sexual abuse of his mother by Prajwal Revanna, and soon after, his mother went missing. The Holenarsipura MLA and his associate were booked under various sections of the IPC, with HD Revanna listed as accused number one and another man, identified as Babanna, as accused number two.
HD Revanna has been booked on charge of kidnapping in connection with the ‘obscene video’ case. The action was taken based on a complaint lodged by the son of a woman who was allegedly “abducted and sexually abused.”
In his complaint filed to KR Nagar police in Mysuru, the man said his mother worked as a housemaid at HD Revanna’s home for six years before returning to her village, where she worked as a daily wage labourer.
The man later discovered a video allegedly depicting sexual abuse of his mother by incumbent MP and Hassan Lok Sabha candidate Prajwal Revanna. He said that soon after the video was revealed, his mother went missing.
Subsequently, he lodged a kidnapping complaint against HD Revanna and Babanna on Thursday night. The Holenarsipura MLA and his associate faced charges under Sections 364A, 365, and 34 of the IPC for kidnapping for ransom, kidnapping with intent to cause harm, and common intention.
The First Information Report (FIR) filed by KR Nagar police names HD Revanna as accused number one and another individual, identified as Babanna, as accused number two.
The FIR was lodged just before the anticipatory bail plea of HD Revanna was scheduled for a hearing in the Special Court for People’s Representatives in Bengaluru on Friday. He failed to attend the summons for questioning by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on May 2.
HD Revanna and Prajwal Revanna are facing a probe by a Special Investigative Team (SIT) over allegations of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation following a complaint by the woman who worked in their household. Revanna was booked in an alleged sexual harassment case on April 28 based on the victim’s complaint, which claimed that Prajwal Revanna and his father had sexually assaulted her.
