Karnataka MP Prajwal Revanna has found himself at the center of a contentious issue, as he faces allegations of sexual assault against numerous women.

Taking proactive measures, Prajwal Revanna secured an ex-parte injunction from the Principal City Civil and Sessions Court against 89 media houses, seeking to prevent the dissemination of what he deems as defamatory content regarding him.

However, the situation escalated further when the Karnataka Mahila Dourjanya Virodhi Vedike reportedly lodged a complaint with the Women’s Commission and urged for the formation of a special investigation team (SIT) to delve into the scandal.

Responding to the mounting pressure and public outcry, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah announced the government’s decision to establish an SIT to investigate the matter. This move comes following a letter from the Chairperson of the Women’s Commission, Dr. Nagalakshmi Chowdhary, urging for an SIT probe in light of the serious allegations.

Heading the SIT is IPS officer Vijay Kumar Singh, with Director General CID Suman D Pennekar and IPS officer Seema Latkar serving as members. Their task is to thoroughly investigate the allegations surrounding the alleged obscene videos circulating, particularly in Hassan district, where it is suggested that women may have been subjected to sexual assault.

The legal ramifications of the case are significant, with charges being registered at the Holenarasipur police station under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including Sections 354 A (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354 D, 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation), and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman). This underscores the gravity of the accusations and the urgency of the investigation to bring justice to the victims and ensure accountability for all involved.
