Janata Dal Secular (JDS) supremo HD Deve Gowda on Thursday issued a stern warning to his grandson Prajwal Revanna, asking him to return to India, surrender to the police or face his wrath.

The former prime minister took to X (formerly Twitter) and posted ä letter to Prajwal and captioned it saying "I have issued a warning to @iPrajwalRevanna to return immediately from wherever he is and subject himself to the legal process. He should not test my patience any further.

In a letter dated May 23, 2024 with the title 'My Warning To Prajwal Revanna', Deve Gowda said "I spoke to the media about Prajwal Revanna on May 18, when I was headed to the temple to offer pooja (prayers). It took me some time to recover from the shock and pain he (Revanna) has inflicted on me, my entire family, my colleagues, friends and party workers".

Deve Gowda further went on to say that he was of the view that Prajwal Revanna should be subject to the 'harshest of punishments', and that his son and former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy also advocated his stance on the matter.

He said that people (reacting to the Prajwal Revanna sex scandal) have used the 'harshest of words' against him and his family in the last few weeks.

"I am aware of it. I do not wish to stop them. I do not wish to criticise them. I will not try and argue with them that they should have waited until the facts were found out", Deve Gowda said, expressing regret over the state of affairs.

Earlier on Thursday, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to cancel the diplomatic passport of Hassan MP Revanna, who is absconding after the alleged sex scandal surfaced last month.

Sources told media that the Karnataka government's request to cancel Revanna's diplomatic passport is now under process by the Ministry of External Affairs.
