Karnataka government forms SIT for probing into ‘obscene videos’ case which allegedly involved Prajwal Revanna

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Saturday said that the state government will be forming a Special Investigation Team (SIT) for probing into ‘obscene videos’ that are said to be allegedly related to JD(S) Lok Sabha candidate Prajwal Revanna in Hassan.

Siddaramaiah also stated that the present decision was taken after the state government received a letter from the chairperson of the Women’s Commission. In an X post (formerly known as Twitter), Siddaramaiah said, “The government has decided to form a special investigation team concerning Prajwal Revanna’s obscene video case. The video clips are circulating in Hassan district, where it appears that women have been sexually assaulted.”

On the other hand, there are multiple reports that suggests that Prajwal had left the country and travelled to Frankfurt on Saturday morning.

It was during the last week when Poornachandra Tejaswi MG, election agent of the Janata Dal (Secular) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), had levelled accusations against a person named Naveen Gowda and others of allegedly circulating some obscene videos for tarnishing the image of Prajwal Ravanna. They had filed an FIR too.

“Naveen Gowda and others morphed videos and circulated them to the voters in the Hassan Lok Sabha segment through pen drives, CDs and WhatsApp to put Prajwal Revanna in a bad light. They are asking the people not to vote for him,” the FIR stated.

Revanna is the grandson of former prime minister HD Devegowda. He is fielded against Congress’ Shreyas M Patel, who is the grandson of former minister G Puttaswamy Gowda, in Karnataka’s Hassan
