Hassan: Karnataka High Court on Wednesday summoned Hassan MP and JD(S) chief HD Deve Gowda’s grandson Prajwal Revanna through a newspaper in response to two election petitions filed against him.

Though the court has already served three notices to Prajwal’s official address in Paduvalahippe of Holenarasipur taluk, following a petition filed by Congress leader Devarajegowda and the-then BJP candidate A Manju who lost to Prajwal in the parliamentary election, Prajwal stated that he had not yet received the notice. Hence, the court directed the petitioners to publish the notice in a prominent Kannada local daily directing Prajwal to attend the court as mentioned date.

The summons was published in a local Kannada daily of Hassan district on Wednesday, September 11. The court in its notice said, “In default of our appearance on the aforementioned date, the petition will be heard and determined in your absence.”

The petitioners have also filed a separate complaint with the state election commission against Revanna alleging that the latter has failed to submit the actual details of his assets in the affidavit to the election commission.

BJP leader from the district, A Manju had alleged that Prajwal Revanna, who is a partner in two companies, failed to mention it in his affidavit which he submitted before contesting the Lok Sabha election from Hassan. Meanwhile, Congress leader Devarajegowda alleged that Prajwal has buried the details of assets owned by him and also failed to file income tax returns for the same.

“We have furnished the documents attached to actual assets owned by Prajwal in detail to the court which will take its legal course of action in future,” he said.
