NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notice to Bhavani Revanna, mother of Prajwal Revanna, on a plea by the special investigation team (SIT) against a High Court order granting anticipatory bail to her in connection with the kidnap case.

However, the Supreme Court remarked, “Let us not politicise the matter.” A bench of Justices Surya Kant and Ujjal Bhuyan issued notice to Bhavani Revanna. The court said to leave aside the political reasons, as it noted the reasons given by the High Court in its order.

The court also noted the serious allegations against her son, who fled and was eventually caught. Thereafter, the court asked, in such kinds of allegations, what kind of role the mother played in abetting the crime committed by her son. The court also said that there is only a limited point as to whether the High Court is justified in protecting her against arrest.


Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Karnataka, said that the victim was kept in captivity under the family’s direction and that she is the one who directed the captivity. The Karnataka SIT has moved a petition through advocate-on-record V N Raghupathy challenging the High Court order granting anticipatory bail to Bhavani Revanna, mother of suspended JD(S) leader Prajwal Revanna, in connection with the kidnap case. The bail has been granted to her on the condition that she is not allowed to enter Mysuru and Hassan.

The Karnataka High Court said that when she has already answered 85 questions, it’s not fair to say that she’s not cooperating with all of the questions asked by the SIT. (ANI)
