Karnataka sex scandal: Woman claims she was forced to file complaint against Prajwal Revanna

Bengaluru/IBNS: In a new twist to the Karnataka sex scandal, one of the complainants has claimed she was forced to file her complaint against suspended Janata Dal Secular leader Prajwal Revanna, media reports said.

The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Thursday said one of the women, who have lodged complaints, has said she was forced by a mob posing as cops to file a false complaint.

Former Karnataka Chief Minister and JDS state president HD Kumaraswamy has alleged the Special Investigation Team (SIT) is trying to extract false statements.

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.

The 33-year-old leader, who is the grandson of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, went abroad, 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.

Meanwhile, Prajwal's father and JDS MLA H.D. Revanna was arrested in connection with a case pertaining to kidnapping of one of the victims in the sex scandal.
