FIR against JDS leader Prajwal Revanna on sexual assault charges, father says conspiracy over 'videos 4-5 years old'

Bengaluru/IBNS: HD Revanna, the father of Karnataka MP and Janata Dal (Secular) leader Prajwal Revanna, has accused rivals of creating a conspiracy out of "old videos", which establishes alleged links of his son to the obscene videos.

This comes as a woman Sunday filed a police case against Prajwal Revanna and his father over alleged sexual assault.

Prajwal Revanna, an candidate of the Janata Dal (Secular) for the upcoming Lok Sabha election and grandson of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, has denied the latest allegations and also filed a police complaint over the circulation of obscene videos, which he said were morphed.

Prajwal Revanna left for Germany on Saturday morning after voting in the Lok Sabha elections a day earlier.

"I know what kind of conspiracy is going on. I am not someone who'll get scared and run away. They have released something that was 4-5 years old. Expelling him from the party is left to the party high command," HD Revanna told mediapersons.

On being pointed out that an FIR has been registered against him too, he said, "There is politics, I don't want to comment. They (Congress) are in government and they will do whatever they want."

"All these things are not just today, the Deve Gowda family in the last 40 years (has been targeted by) Congress. CoD (now CID), Lokayukta probe, we have been facing for the last 40 years... I don't want to react to anything...let them take action in accordance with law," he said.

"Since the special investigation team is looking into the case, I will not react any further," HD Revanna said.

On Sunday, an FIR was filed against the father-son duo on charges of sexual harassment, intimidation, and outraging the dignity of a woman.

The survivor alleged both sexually assaulted her, and when Revanna's wife was not home, he touched her inappropriately and used to sexually assault her.

The complainant alleged that Prajwal Revanna misbehaved with her daughter over a video call. "My daughter blocked his number after repeated calls," the complainant said.
