JDS MLA H.D. Revanna booked for 'kidnapping' maid who appeared in sex tapes involving Prajwal Revanna

Bengaluru/IBNS: In a fresh allegation surrounding the "sex tape" row in Karnataka, former minister and Janata Dal Secular (JDS) MLA H.D. Revanna has been booked for allegedly kidnapping his maid, who appeared in the viral sex tapes involving the leader's son Prajwal Revanna.

Police registered a case against H.D. Revanna and Satish Babanna, who stays in Mysore, under several IPC sections.

For six years, the woman worked at H.D. Revanna's residence and farmhouse in Holenarasipura. She quit her work three years ago.

Last month, Babanna came to the woman's residence and said H.D. Revanna's wife Bhavani wanted to meet her.

As per the First Information Report (FIR), the woman's son said as quoted by The Indian Express, "While I was looking for my mother, on May 1, a couple of my friends asked about my mother featured in the alleged sex tapes of Prajwal.

"I called Satish over the phone to check the whereabouts of my mother and he said that a case had been registered against her and she had to get bail."

The woman, who headed back to H.D. Revanna's house, went missing since April 29. Police could not trace her yet.

Meanwhile, a lookout notice has been issued against Prajwal Revanna, who is also the former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda's grandson, who is facing charges of sexual assault of women.

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

Prajwal 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 Prajwal 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 Prajwal Revanna over sexual assault. She accused the JDS leader of sexually abusing her on several occasions between 2019 and 2022.
