The controversy surrounding the alleged sex scandal case involving Janata Dal (Secular) leaders Prajwal Revanna and his father HD Revanna escalated after the Siddaramaiah-led Karnataka government on Wednesday ruled out a CBI investigation into the case.

This came after JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy expressed doubts over how the investigation was carried out and demanded that the case, which is currently being probed by the state government-constituted SIT, be handed over to the CBI.

Meanwhile, HD Revanna, who was earlier arrested over a kidnapping allegation in the sex scandal case, was sent to judicial custody till May 14. His bail petition before a sessions court has been posted for Thursday.

Three arrests have been made in this case so far including JD(S) MLA HD Revanna and his aide Satish Babanna, said Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara. However, the minister declined to reveal the name of the third accused, stating that it would affect the investigation.

Here are the top updates in the Karnataka sex scandal case:

  • Arrested JD(S) MLA HD Revanna was sent to judicial custody till May 14 by a Magisterial court in the kidnapping case linked to the alleged obscene video and sex scandal case.
