HASSAN/BENGALURU: Former minister and JD(S) MLA HD Revanna, facing sexual harassment charges, said on Wednesday the people of Hassan, “who have blessed me for decades, will not abandon me”. Revanna, who was arrested and is out on bail, refused to discuss the case “since it is sub judice”.
Meanwhile, Revanna’s brother, former CM HD Kumaraswamy, said the sex scandal allegedly involving Revanna’s son and Hassan MP Prajwal Revanna had dented the image of party patriarch and former PM HD Deve Gowda.He said Congress was trying to dent Gowda’s image by planning a rally in Hassan on May 30.
JD(S), meanwhile, submitted a formal complaint to Karnataka DGP & IG Alok Mohan against Congress MP Rahul Gandhi for allegedly saying Prajwal had “raped 400 women”. The complaint comes nearly three weeks after the remarks were allegedly made during LS poll rallies in Shivamogga and Raichur on May 2.
The complaint, submitted by HM Ramesh Gowda, a former MLC and JD(S) Bengaluru City unit chief, seeks registration of a criminal case against Gandhi under IPC Section 202 (intentional omission to give information of an offence by a person legally bound to inform). “Since Rahul has made a specific statement that Prajwal raped 400 women, he is aware of the information and details of the 400 women who were raped and has intentionally failed to disclose the details,” Gowda states in the complaint.
Police said no FIR had been registered, as yet.
