"Know what kind of conspiracy, will not get scared...": HD Revanna on 'obscene videos' case involving Prajwal Revanna

Bengaluru (Karnataka): With the Karnataka Police probing the 'obscene videos' case, Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Revanna has said that he will not get scared and run away and that the party's central leadership will take a decision on demand for expulsion of his son Prajwal Revanna,MP, who has been booked in the case.

Karnataka Police have also lodged a FIR against HD Revanna in the case.

"I know what kind of conspiracy is going on. I am not someone who will get scared and run away. They have released something that is four-five years old. Expelling him (Prajwal Revanna) from the party is left to the party high command," he told reporters.

He said the Siddaramaiah government in the state was conducting a probe and they have faced several investigations under the Congress government in the past.

HD Revanna, who is son of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, said he had not spoken to his father on the issue.

"It is their state government. Let them investigate. Prajwal was anyway going abroad. He didn't know an FIR was going to be filed against him.

For the last 40 years under Congress we have faced several investigations. Be it CoD or SIT. I haven't spoken to Deve Gowda on this. Action will be taken according to law," he said.

Prajwal Revanna was booked in a sexual harassment case on Sunday following complaints by his former house help. FIR has been filed against Prajwal Revanna and HD Revanna in connection with the case.

The case has been registered under sections 354A, 354D, 506, and 509 of the IPC on charges of sexual harassment, intimidation and outraging the dignity of a woman. As per the complaint, the victim has claimed that both HD Revanna and Prajwal Revanna sexually assaulted her. The complainant also claimed that Prajwal Revanna behaved rudely with her and also misbehaved with her daughter over a video call.

Prajwal Revanna is already in the middle of a controversy after some objectionable videos went viral on social media allegedly involving him. Prajwal Revanna is seeking a fresh term in the Lower House from Hassan as a candidate of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and is pitted against Congress' Shreyas Patel.

The Karnataka government has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the alleged obscene video case.
Janata Dal (Secular) MLA Sharana Gowda Kandakur has written to party president HD Deve Gowda demanding the expulsion of Prajwal Revanna from the party over the alleged obscene video case.
