JDS suspends Deve Gowda's grandson Prajwal Revanna over 'sex scandal'

| @indiablooms | 30 Apr 2024, 01:18 pm

Bengaluru/IBNS: The Janata Dal Secular has suspended former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda's grandson Prajwal Revanna after he was seen allegedly sexually abusing women in a video which went viral, media reports said.

The controversy erupted in Karnataka after videos showing Revanna allegedly sexually assaulting several women went viral on social media.

It went viral a day after Hassan constituency went to polls in the Lok Sabha contest.

Meanwhile, Revanna left India for Germany on Saturday morning, after the videos went viral.

The alleged scandal came to light after a woman filed a complaint against Revanna over sexual assault. She accused the JDS leader of sexually abusing her on several occasions between 2019 and 2022.

While expulsion means losing the party's primary membership, the suspension would bar Prajwal from participating in any JD(S) activity.

Prajwal's father HD Revanna has accused rivals of creating a conspiracy out of "old videos", which establishes alleged links of his son to the obscene videos.
