She mentioned that the ongoing harassment that spanned from 2020 to 2021 greatly affected her family and prompted them to change their phone numbers.

“Yes, it is true that Revanna sexually harassed the female servants on the pretext of offering them fruits while Prajwal raped my mother,” she confirmed. “Currently, only three people have publicly disclosed these incidents. Three other staff members have not yet spoken about this abuse. They too were victims of sexual abuse by her.”

The woman claimed that they were forced to sell their land two years after the incident. “My mother only came home once every four to five months. She was harassed so intensely that she only contacted us late at night, around 1 or 2 o’clock. She rarely talked to us. “They subjected my mother to similar abuse, brought her into slavery and assaulted my father,” she alleged.

She called Prajwal Revanna and HD Revanna “habitual offenders” and demanded justice for herself and her mother.

The 33-year-old JD(S) MP and his father are accused of sexually abusing women. The scandal has triggered a political controversy, with the ruling Congress and the BJP-JD(S) engaging in heated exchanges.
