Former Karnataka minister and JD(S) MLA H.D. Revanna and his son Prajwal Revanna have been booked in a kidnapping case based on a 20-year-old's complaint alleging that his mother was abducted after a video of her being raped emerged. 

The 'missing' woman was among the many women featured in the alleged sex tapes of Prajwal Revanna. According to the complainant, his mother was kidnapped by Revanna. She is a resident of Krishnaraja Nagar town in Mysuru district.

According to the police, the case was registered on Thursday night. Revanna, who is a JD(S) MLA from Holenarasipura constituency in Hassan district is the son of former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda. 

Prajwal, the sitting JD(S) MP from Hassan, has been accused of sexually abusing women. A Special Investigation Team has been constituted to probe the case after the video clips emerged involving the MP. 

A case of molestation was already registered against the father-son duo at Holenarasipura police station. While, in the latest case, the complainant said that his mother worked at Revanna's residence in Holenarasipura six years ago. She had quit the job three years ago and returned to her hometown. 

Revanna’s close aide Sathish Babanna had come to his house about five days ago and warned that police may come to them for an inquiry and they should not reveal anything.

By about 9 pm on April 29, Babanna came to our house and said if your mother is caught then you will be in trouble and you may all go to jail, said the complainant. 

“Revanna has asked me to take you. He then took her on a motorcycle,” the complainant added. He further said that he had no clue where his mother had been taken away. However, on May 1, he said he received a call from his friends who told him that a video showing his mother tied with a rope had surfaced online and Prajwal allegedly raped her. 

There is a threat to my mother’s life, said the complainant.
