An unnamed woman has accused suspended JD(S) leader Prajwal Revanna and his father HD Revanna of sexual assault and harassment. The victim, whose identity is being kept confidential, claims that Prajwal Revanna raped her mother at his Bengaluru residence four to five years ago. Sources within the Special Investigation Team (SIT) report that the victim’s daughter provided a detailed testimony outlining the incidents.

The woman further claimed that Prajwal Revanna manipulated her between 2020 and 2021, coercing her into answering video calls and compelling her to remove her clothes under threats of harm to herself and her mother.

“He (Prajwal) would call me and demand that I remove my clothes. He dialed my mother’s phone and coerced me into answering the video calls. When I resisted, he threatened to harm both me and my mother. After our family became aware of the incidents and supported us, we proceeded to file a complaint,” she recounted.

The woman made allegations that HD Revanna and Prajwal Revanna raped and sexually harassed her mother. She also claimed that Prajwal sexually abused her.

What did the women say about Prajwal Revanna?

“She said that Prajwal used to threaten her mother, asserting that if she didn’t comply, he would strip her husband of his job, rendering him unemployed, and even rape her daughter,” she recounted, noting that her father lost his job after they lodged a complaint about the matter.

She mentioned that the ongoing harassment, spanning from 2020 to 2021, greatly affected her family, leading them to change their phone numbers.

Additionally, she accused the Hassan MP of sexually harassing the female servants at his residence.

“Yes, it’s true that Revanna sexually harassed the female servants under the guise of offering them fruits, while Prajwal raped my mother,” she affirmed. “Currently, only three individuals have publicly disclosed these incidents. Three more servants have not yet spoken about these abuses. They too were victims of sexual abuse by them.”

The woman alleged that two years after the incident, they were compelled to sell their land. “My mother would visit home only once every four to five months. She faced such intense harassment that she would only contact us late at night, around 1 or 2 am. She rarely engaged in conversation with us. They subjected my mother to mistreatment akin to slavery and assaulted my father,” she claimed.

She labeled Prajwal Revanna and HD Revanna as “habitual offenders” and demanded justice for herself and her mother.

The 33-year-old JD(S) MP and his father are facing accusations of sexually abusing women. The scandal has sparked a political controversy, with the ruling Congress and BJP-JD(S) engaging in a heated exchange.
