JDS Leader HD Revanna Visits Former PM Deve Gowda Residence After Release From Jail

Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India]: Janata Dal-Secular leader HD Revanna paid a visit to former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda at his residence on Wednesday.

Revanna was released from Parappana Agrahara Jail after he was granted conditional bail by a special court of people's representatives on Tuesday.

The JDS leader was arrested on May 4 by SIT officials in a kidnapping case registered against him at KR Nagar police station in the city. HD Revanna had been sent to judicial custody till May 14 in connection with the 'obscene video' kidnapping case on May 8.

He was arrested by the Special Investigation Team on May 4 in connection with an alleged kidnapping case registered against him at KR Nagar police station in Bengaluru.

HD Revanna and his son, Prajwal Revanna, are facing a probe by an SIT, constituted by the Karnataka government over allegations of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation against the duo following a complaint by a woman who worked in their household.

HD Revanna, who is a JD(S) MLA from Holenarsipura, along with his associate were booked under Sections 364A (kidnapping for ransom), 365 (kidnapping with intent to cause harm), and 34 (common intention) of the IPC.

The FIR, registered by KR Nagar police, lists HD Revanna as accused number one and another man, identified as Babanna, as accused number two.

However, HD Revanna has termed this case a "political conspiracy" against him."It's a political conspiracy going on against me. In my 40 years of political life, I have never seen anything like this," he told reporters.
