Bengaluru court sends Suraj Revanna to 14 days judicial custody in sexual abuse case

Suraj Revanna was arrested by the Hassan police on Sunday morning following his interrogation at Hassan’s cyber station on Saturday evening.

A First Information Report (FIR) was registered against Suraj under Sections 377 (unnatural offences), 342 (illegal detention), 506 (criminal intimidation), 34 (act committed by several persons for a common intention) based on a complaint filed by a youth.

The youth had complained to the Director General of Police (DGP) and the Home Minister that Suraj Revanna had engaged in sexual intercourse with him at Gannigada Farm House in Channarayapatna taluk. The young man requested appropriate action, alleging that he and his family were threatened by Suraj Revanna and his close friend Shivakumar of Hanumanahalli village.

The case was transferred to Holenarseepur Rural Police Station. Accordingly, a statement was obtained from the complainant on Saturday, and an FIR was registered. Earlier today, the DGP transferred the case to Crime Investigation Department (CID).

Notably, on Friday, Shivakumar had also filed a complaint against the young man at Holenarasipur City Police Station. He alleged that the youth had threatened to accuse Revanna of sexual assault if he did not help him find a job. Shivakumar also claimed that the young man had demanded ₹5 crore to avoid filing the allegedly false complaint.
