Karnataka govt challenges HC move to grant Bhavani Revanna anticipatory bail in SC

Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Jul 7: The Karnataka state government has moved the Supreme Court questioning the Karnataka High Court's decision to grant anticipatory bail to Bhavani Revanna, who is accused in the kidnapping case involving a woman linked to the rape allegations against former MP Prajwal Revanna.

Justice Krishna S Dixit approved Bhavani Revanna's anticipatory bail application on June 18, a decision that has sparked a legal challenge from the state government.

A division bench comprising Justice Suryakant and Justice Ujwal Bhuyan is scheduled to hear the Karnataka government's petition on Wednesday, July 10.

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) had argued that Bhavani Revanna did not cooperate during the investigation. However, the High Court did not find this argument compelling. According to Special Public Prosecutor Prof Ravi Verma Kumar, Bhavani Revanna responded to all 85 questions posed during the investigation.

"The police cannot expect the accused to answer questions as they wish," argued Prof Ravi Verma Kumar.

During proceedings, the High Court noted contradictions in the prosecution's claim that the victim was denied food and clothing by Bhavani Revanna. Referring to the victim's statement under CrPC Section 164, the judge observed that Bhavani had indeed sent food and clothes, questioning the characterization of the incident as kidnapping.

Bhavani Revanna and several others face charges under IPC sections 364a, 365, and 34 related to kidnapping.
