HD Revanna is facing two criminal cases– one involving sexual assault allegations and the other of kidnapping. He was granted bail in both cases earlier this month

The Karnataka High Court on Friday observed infirmity with the trial court order granting bail to Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Revanna in connection with the kidnapping case filed against him. The court said the trial court appeared to have errored in its interpretation of certain legal provisions while granting bail to former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowdaโ€™s son.

Making oral observations into the case, Justice Krishna S Dixit issued an emergent notice to Revanna and sought his response to a bail cancellation petition.

The courtโ€™s observation came after the Special Investigation Team (SIT)โ€“ constituted by the State to probe the kidnapping and sexual abuse allegations against HD Revanna and his son, Prajwal Revannaโ€“ approached it with a bail cancellation plea saying that the trial court appeared to be defective in its interpretation of section 364A (kidnapping for ransom) of Indian Penal Code (IPC).

HD Revanna is facing two criminal casesโ€“ one involving sexual assault allegations and the other of kidnapping. He was granted bail in both cases earlier this month.
