“The process of registering the second FIR is on against Suraj Revanna,” a senior police officer of Hassan told PTI.

Notably, the complainant had earlier supported Revanna and had even filed a complaint on his behalf against the JD(S) worker, who had accused the MLC of unnatural sex.

The first case of sodomy was registered against Suraj on Saturday night. The next day, he was arrested and remanded to 14 days’ judicial custody. On Monday, the court remanded him to eight days’ police custody. The complainant had accused the MLC of sexually assaulting him at his farmhouse in Ghannikada on June 16.

Suraj Revanna, the eldest son of Holenarasipura MLA H D Revanna and grandson of former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, had categorically denied the first charge against him.

He had also alleged that the JD(S) worker had filed a “false complaint” in a bid to extort 5 crore from him.

The MLC is the elder brother of former Hassan MP Prajwal Revanna, who is also in police custody for allegedly sexually assaulting several women in Hassan and filming them.

Suraj and Prajwal’s parents, Revanna and Bhavani, are out on bail on charges of kidnapping a woman who had figured in one of the huge cache of explicit videos showing many women being sexually assaulted, allegedly by Prajwal.

Prajwal had contested the 2024 Lok Sabha election as the NDA candidate as his party JD(S) formed an alliance with the BJP in September last year.
