The Special Investigation Team (SIT) has intensified its search operations over the last 24 hours across various locations to find Bhavani Revanna, the mother of suspended JD(S) MP Prajwal Revanna, in connection with a kidnapping case. Sources confirmed on Sunday that Bhavani was not at her Holenarasipura residence in Hassan district.

Speaking on the matter, Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara stated that efforts are underway to 'arrest' Bhavani, who is currently 'absconding'. He emphasized that Bhavani, who is evading the authorities, will be apprehended soon.

'The Special Investigation Team is actively searching for Bhavani to arrest her. We are unaware of her current whereabouts, but she will be detained once located. This is a standard legal process,' Parameshwara informed the press.

The SIT had earlier issued a notice for Bhavani to be present at her home for questioning related to the kidnap case, which also involves sexual abuse allegations against her son, Prajwal Revanna. When the SIT officers arrived at her residence 'Chennambika Nilaya,' Bhavani was missing.

On Saturday evening, two women lawyers visited 'Chennambika Nilaya' and interacted with the SIT officials. The reasons for their visit remain undisclosed.

It was reported that Bhavani, through her lawyers, cited her unwellness and assured the SIT officials of her forthcoming appearance.

Bhavani's husband, Holenarasipura JD(S) MLA H D Revanna, is currently on bail regarding the same case.

Extensive searches have been conducted in Mysuru, Hassan, Bengaluru, Mandya, and Ramanagara, including at the residences of Bhavani's relatives. However, she remains untraceable, sources said.

The SIT has deployed multiple teams in the hunt for Bhavani.

Prajwal Revanna, facing allegations of sexual abuse against several women, fled to Germany but returned to India on Friday and was arrested straightaway by the SIT at Bengaluru airport. A special court has remanded him to police custody until June 6.
