Sexual assault case: JD(S) MLC Suraj Revanna, son of former Karnataka minister HD Revanna, brought to CID office in Bengaluru

Karnataka Police arrested Suraj Revanna, who is the son of former Karnataka Minister HD Revanna, earlier in the day for alleged sexual assault on a male party worker. The case was later transferred to the CID for further investigation.

Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) MLC Suraj Revanna was brought to the Crime Investigation Department office of the Karnataka Police in Bengaluru on Sunday in connection with the ongoing probe into an alleged sexual assault case.

Karnataka Police arrested Suraj Revanna, who is the son of former Karnataka Minister HD Revanna, earlier in the day for alleged sexual assault on a male party worker. The case was later transferred to the CID for further investigation.

According to the police FIR, Revanna has been charged under sections 377 (carnal intercourse against the order of nature), 342 (wrongful confinement), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC for the offense allegedly committed on June 16 as per the complaint.

A counter FIR has been registered against the complainant JD(S) worker and his brother-in-law on the complaint filed by the personal assistant of Suraj Revanna for allegedly threatening and blackmailing the MLC with false allegations of sexual assault. The FIR has been filed under sections 384 (extortion) and 506 (criminal intimidation).

Suraj Revanna’s arrest comes days after his younger brother and former JD-S MP Prajwal Revanna was remanded to judicial custody by a special court in Bengaluru over separate allegations of sexually assaulting multiple women.

He was sent to judicial custody for 14 days by the 42nd Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Court on June 10. Prajwal Revanna and Suraj Revanna are the grandchildren of JD-S patriarch and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda.
