Karnataka: BJP leader, who flagged Prajwal Revanna's 'sex scandal', arrested in a sexual assault case

Bengaluru/IBNS: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader G Devaraje Gowda, who flagged the alleged sexual abuse of a series of women by suspended JDS leader Prajwal Revanna, was taken into custody by police in connection with a sexual assault case on Friday night, media reports said.

Gowda was taken into custody when he was travelling from Bengaluru to Chitradurga.

On the basis of a complaint by a 36-year-old woman, Gowda has been arrested for allegedly molesting her on the pretext of helping her to sell her property.

Though he is accused of leaking the videos allegedly showing Revanna sexually abusing women, Gowda denied the charge and instead pinned the blame on Congress.

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.
