Prajwal Revanna's 'sex scandal': Lookout notice issued against Deve Gowda's grandson

Bengaluru/IBNS: A lookout notice has been issued against former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda's grandson and suspended Janata Dal Secular (JDS) leader, Prajwal Revanna, who is facing charges of sexual assault of women, media reports said.

Earlier, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) had turned down Revanna's request to give him seven days' time to appear before the probe officials.

Revanna has been caught in the middle of a massive row in Karnataka after some leaked explicit videos allegedly showed him sexually assaulting multiple women.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who has initiated a probe against him, in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged that the diplomatic passport of Revanna be cancelled, as he has managed to leave the country despite being the key accused in the case.

"Sending the impeding police case and arrest, the accused Member of Parliament and NDA candidate for Lok Sabha Prajwal Revanna has fled the country and travelled abroad. It is learnt from the reports that he is travelling abroad on his diplomatic passport," Siddaramaiah's letter read.

"While the SIT is working round the clock to investigate the allegations of crimes against several women by Prajwal Revanna, getting him back to the country is of utmost importance so that he faces investigation and trial as per the law of the land," he added.

The 33-year-old leader left for Germany on Saturday, a day after polling took place in Karnataka's Hassan from where he is a candidate, and shortly after the videos began circulating online.

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.
