A woman has come forward with allegations against suspended JD(S) leader Prajwal Revanna and his father HD Revanna, accusing them of sexual assault and harassment. The woman, whose identity remains protected, alleged that Prajwal Revanna raped her mother four to five years back at his Bengaluru residence. According to sources in the Special Investigation Team (SIT), she provided detailed testimony outlining the incidents.

The woman also alleged that between 2020 and 2021, she was manipulated by Prajwal Revanna into answering video calls, and forced to remove her clothes under threat of harm to her and her mother.

"My mother was raped and sexually harassed by Prajwal Revanna. She was sexually harassed by HD Revanna too," the woman alleged.

"Yes, it's true that Revanna would sexually harass the female servants under the pretext of giving them fruits, while Prajwal raped my mother. As of now, only three people have come out and spoken about these incidents in public. Three more servants haven't spoken about these atrocities. They were also sexually abused by them," the woman claimed.

The 33-year-old JD(S) MP and his father are facing charges of sexually abusing women. The scandal has raised a political storm with the ruling Congress and BJP-JD(S) engaged in a slugfest.
