Karnataka High Court Declines to Halt Investigation into Preetham Gowda in Prajwal Revanna Obscene Video Case

The Karnataka High Court has refused to stay the investigation against Preetham Gowda, former MLA, in connection with allegations involving circulation of obscene videos by Prajwal Revanna.

Justice Krishna S Dixit expressed skepticism about halting ongoing inquiries.

Court Orders and Conditions

Justice Dixit ruled that the investigation should proceed under the discretion of the respondent in a standard manner. However, he specified that Gowda should not face arrest as long as he cooperates with the investigation. The court clarified that its order does not impede any new evidence that may be uncovered by the police.

Legal Arguments and Background

Advocate CV Nagesh, representing Gowda, contested the charges under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), arguing against the validity of the offenses. The court maintained that the determination of charges would be a subject of the ongoing investigation and therefore declined to suspend the probe.

Allegations Against Prajwal Revanna

Prajwal Revanna, a former JD(S) MP, faces multiple allegations of sexual abuse, following the circulation of numerous videos depicting assaults on women online. The case against him and his father was initially registered in April, prompting an investigation led by a senior IPS officer.

The legal proceedings continue amidst public outcry and political ramifications, with Revanna recently remanded to SIT custody until June 29 by order of a Special Magistrate.
