In a significant development, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) escorted the suspended JD(S) leader Prajwal Revanna to his residence in Holenarasipura, Hassan district, for a detailed spot inspection on Saturday.

Prajwal, aged 33, who recently lost the Lok Sabha election as an NDA candidate from Hassan, is embroiled in multiple sexual assault cases.

Adding to the complexity, his father, Holenarasipura MLA H D Revanna, and his mother Bhavani Revanna, are out on bail in a kidnapping case linked to the abduction of a woman involved in numerous videos allegedly featuring Prajwal in acts of sexual assault.

Police sources indicate that the SIT brought the former Hassan MP under heavy security arrangements to his residence as a precautionary measure, cordoning off the entire area.

Appearing for the first time at his residence since April 27, Prajwal wore a black T-shirt and a mask. He had previously fled to Germany when explicit videos surfaced online, showing women being sexually abused, allegedly by him.

Prajwal, the grandson of former Prime Minister and JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda, returned to India on May 31, only to be subsequently arrested by the SIT, which is rigorously investigating the sexual assault allegations against him.
