Prajwal Revanna To Appear Before SIT On May 31, Apologize To Parents In A Video Release

Days after the Prajwal Revanna sex abuse case hit national headlines, JD(S) MP from Hasan, Prajwal Revanna, released a video in which he apologized to his parents and stated that he would appear before the SIT on May 31.

A few days ago, Prajwal’s grandfather and former Indian Prime Minister, H.D. Devegowda, issued a stern warning to his grandson, asking him to return to India and face the probe in the sexual abuse case.

In the self-shot video, Prajwal said that he would personally appear before the SIT at 10 am on May 31, and would fully cooperate in the investigation.

Prajwal left India on April 27, and later the Karnataka Government instituted an SIT probe to investigate the allegations against the JD(S) MP.

In his video, Prajwal said,

“Rahul Gandhi and many other Congress leaders started talking about it and against me, and a political conspiracy was formed against me… At 10 am on Friday, May 31, I will appear before the SIT and provide all information related to the investigation. I will support the investigation. I have faith in the judiciary.”

Prajwal also said that his foreign trip was pre-planned and when voting was held on April 26, no cases were against him and no SIT had been formed.

Both the Congress and the BJP have accused each other of politicizing the event, and Union Home Minister Amit Shah blamed the Congress for not acting immediately.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah accused Deve Gowda of helping Prajwal leave the country.

Upon a request from the Karnataka Government to cancel Prajwal’s passport, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) issued a show cause notice to him on May 24. The MEA has initiated the process of canceling his diplomatic passport under the Passports Act of 1967 provisions and related regulations.

Prajwal Revanna Sex Scandal

Prajwal Revanna, the BJP-JD(S) candidate from the Hasan constituency for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, and his father MLA H.D. Revanna have been charged with sexually harassing women between 2019 and 2022.

The scandal-hit national headlines when explicit videos of Prajwal with several women were leaked to the public. In all, 2,976 clips were leaked publicly. After a national outcry, the JD(S) suspended Prajwal Revanna from the party.
