Former Karnataka minister and JD(S) leader HD Revanna, who was arrested in an alleged abduction case by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing alleged sex abuse by his son and absconding Hassan MP Prajwal Revanna, has been released from Parappana Agrahara jail on Tuesday, May 14, after he was granted conditional bail, ANI reported. 

He was granted conditional bail yesterday by a Bengaluru court.

The case

Revanna was arrested on May 4 by SIT officials in a kidnapping case registered against him at KR Nagar police station in the city. The JD(S) MLA from Holenarsipura termed the case a "political conspiracy" against him.

The SIT constituted by the Karnataka government is probing the alleged sexual abuse against Revanna and his son Prajwal Revanna.

Prajwal Revanna, the incumbent MP, is seeking another term from the Hassan Lok Sabha constituency. The voting for the seat took place on April 26.

Earlier, JD(S) chief HD Kumaraswamy alleged that the Karnataka government did not want a fair inquiry.

"They are misusing the office. Nothing is going to happen ultimately. They wanted character assassination of HD Revanna, and for that reason, they are using their office," Kumaraswamy told ANI.

A delegation of the Janata Dal (Secular) met Karnataka Governor Tawara Chanda Gehlot on May 9 and submitted a memorandum and urged Gehlot to recommend a CBI probe.

Prajwal Revanna flees country

Prajwal Revanna fled to Germany after Karnataka State Commission for Women chairperson Nagalakshmi Chowdhary wrote to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah seeking an investigation against Prajwal Revanna after obscene video clips allegedly involving the MP started making the rounds in Hassan. He has also skipped summons issued by the SIT to appear before it.

The ‘obscene videos’ involving Prajwal Revanna surfaced ahead of the first phase of Lok Sabha elections in Karnataka on April 26, triggering a political slugfest.

A lookout notice against Prajwal Revanna has been issued at all airports in India, along with a Blue Corner notice. A Blue Corner notice issued by Interpol helps countries collect and share information regarding a person's location and activities as part of a criminal investigation.
