A court on Monday granted conditional bail to JD(S) MLA and former Karnataka Minister HD Revanna in a sexual assault case. This comes days after he was granted interim relief by the 42nd Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court on May 16.  Revanna's bail was initially set to last until May 17, shortly after he was granted conditional bail in a related kidnapping case connected to the 'obscene video' incident.

What is the case? 

The case, registered on April 28 at the Holenarasipura town police station, involves allegations of sexual assault by HD Revanna and his son, Hassan MP Prajwal Revanna, against a house help. Both HD Revanna and Prajwal Revanna are under investigation by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted by the Karnataka government. The probe follows a complaint by a woman who worked in their household, accusing them of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation.

HD Revanna was arrested on May 4

Earlier on May 14, HD Revanna, who was arrested on charges of a kidnapping case linked to the 'obscene video' case, was released from Parappana Agrahara Jail after he was granted conditional bail by a special court for people's representatives. The judge granted conditional bail to Revanna on a Rs 5 lakh bond. He was arrested on May 4 by SIT officials in a kidnapping case registered against him at the KR Nagar police station in the city.

BJP demands case to be handed over to CBI

Meanwhile, Karnataka BJP president BY Vijayendra has demanded to hand over the investigation into the alleged obscene video case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). "Many prominent names are being heard in connection with this case. Therefore I want to tell the state government that the victims should get justice and for that to happen it is not possible for the SIT but rather the case should be handed over to the CBI. This is what I'm requesting from the state government," he told news agency ANI.
