Karnataka: Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Revanna, who was detained by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in a kidnapping case last week, has been sent to judicial custody till May 14. He was held by the SIT officials on May 4 in a kidnapping case registered against him at KR Nagar police station in Bengaluru.

Revanna on Tuesday failed to get relief from the Special Court for Elected Representatives, which had adjourned his bail plea hearing for today.

The 66-year-old former Minister was detained by the SIT on Saturday in an alleged case of abduction of a woman and remanded to police custody till May 8. The court had on Saturday turned down his anticipatory bail plea.

Revanna, son of JD(S) patriarch and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, and his confidant Sathish Babanna were booked on Thursday night for allegedly abducting a woman on April 29.

The case was registered on a complaint filed by the woman's son, who alleged that his mother was sexually abused by Revanna's son and JD(S) MP Prajwal Revanna. The SIT has also secured the custody of Babanna.

The woman was allegedly abducted to prevent her from testifying against Prajwal, police sources said.

The explicit videos of the alleged sexual abuse of women by Prajwal had been making the rounds on social media based on which the state government formed the SIT on April 28 to probe the case after the Karnataka State Commission for Women wrote a letter to the Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

The 33-year-old Prajwal, who was the NDA candidate in the Hassan Lok Sabha constituency, reportedly left the country on April 27, a day after the elections, and skipped the SIT summons to appear before it.

Interpol has issued a Blue Corner notice against the absconding MP, who is facing sexual abuse charges.
