Karnataka Scandal : Prajwal Revanna arrested at Bengaluru Airport over sexual harassment allegations

Karnataka Sex Scandal : In a major breakthrough, JD (S) suspended MP Prajwal Revanna on Friday was arrested at Bengaluru Airport and brought to the CID office in Bengaluru after he landed at Kempegowda International Airport.

He is likely to face a probe by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) over allegations of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation following a complaint by a woman who worked in his household.


The Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Karnataka government detained Revanna upon his arrival at Bengaluru airport. Officials have stated that Revanna will be presented in court later today regarding the alleged obscene video case.

The SIT team confiscated two of his check-in bags, transporting them in a separate vehicle.

Security was heightened outside the CID office in Bengaluru, with barricades placed in anticipation of the arrival of JD(S) suspended MP Prajwal Revanna, who is facing sexual abuse allegations.

Meanwhile, Karnataka Youth Congress president Mohammed Haris Nalapad claimed that Prajwal Revanna’s planned trip abroad was sponsored by the BJP.

Revanna is facing a probe by the SIT over allegations of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation following a complaint by a woman who worked in his household.

He returned to India from Berlin, Germany, nearly a month after leaving the country on a diplomatic passport and was immediately taken into custody.

Prajwal Revanna, in a self-made video released on May 27, said that he will appear before the SIT on May 31 for questioning. Revanna said that his trip was pre-planned as there was no case against him when the voting was held in Karnataka on April 26 for the general elections. He also alleged political conspiracy against him as he was "growing in politics." Revanna's location is still unknown and is supposedly in Germany, according to officials.

According to police sources, the accused were arrested when they appeared before the High Court seeking anticipatory bail. Arrested Chetan Gowda and Naveen Gowda allegedly distributed pen drives containing videos of Prajwal Revanna sexually assaulting women.
