Bhavani has been accused of conspiring to abduct a former house help, who is an alleged victim of sexual abuse, to prevent her from giving statements against her son and former MP of Hassan, Prajwal Revanna.

Special public prosecutor Ravivarma Kumar earlier claimed that Bhavani was the ‘mastermind’ of the entire kidnap episode and that even though the SIT secured a non-bailable warrant, she had failed to appear before the investigating officer, as per an assurance given by her in a letter to the SIT.

The Karnataka government formed an SIT to probe the cases against Prajwal on the recommendation of the Karnataka State Commission for Women chairperson Nagalakshmi Chowdhary, who wrote to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to investigate the matter. On May 31, the former Hassan MP was arrested at Bengaluru airport after he returned from a month-long stay in Germany.
