Karnataka HC grants anticipatory bail to Bhavani Revanna in kidnapping case


PTI, Jun 18, 2024, 1:50 PM IST

Karnataka High Court on Tuesday granted anticipatory bail to Bhavani Revanna, mother of former JD(S) MP and rape accused Prajwal Revanna, in a kidnapping case involving one of the victims of her son’s sexual assaults.

The Court emphasised that Bhavani had already answered 85 questions during the investigation, making it unfair to claim she was not cooperating with the Special Investigation Team (SIT), which is probing sexual abuse cases against Prajwal.

The SIT had sought her custody in connection with the kidnapping of a house-help in K R Nagar in Mysuru district, after she failed to attend questioning.

Justice Krishna S. Dixit, while granting bail, emphasized the need to avoid media trials and unnecessary arrests, especially of women with significant familial roles.

With conditions, including restricted entry to Mysuru and Hassan districts, the Court allowed the SIT to take her to these locations for further investigations. Meanwhile, Prajwal remains in SIT custody over multiple sexual abuse allegations, which surfaced through explicit videos circulated just before the Lok Sabha polls.
