Expressing disappointment over the lack of action following his previous correspondence on the matter, the Chief Minister highlighted the urgency of the situation. 

Siddaramaiah had written a letter to Modi on May 1, urging him to coordinate with the Ministries of External Affairs and Home Affairs to cancel Prajwal’s diplomatic passport. The recent development saw the Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed by the state government to investigate the allegations against the MP also reaching out to the Ministry of External Affairs, citing an arrest warrant issued against Prajwal by the court, in support of their request to cancel his diplomatic passport.

“I write to you once again to draw attention to the grave series of incidents that Prajwal Revanna has been accused of committing. These incidents have not only shocked the conscience of the people of the State of Karnataka but have also caused a nationwide concern,” Siddaramaiah said in his letter to the PM dated May 22.

He said, “It is shameful that Prajwal Revanna, a Member of Parliament from Hassan constituency, who is also contesting for re-election in the present general elections, and who is the grandson of a former Prime Minister, fled the country, the 27th of April, 2024 to Germany using his diplomatic passport bearing number D1135500 shortly after news of his heinous actions emerged and just a few hours before the first FIR was filed against him.”

The 33-year-old Prajwal, who is the grandson of JD(S) patriarch and former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda and is the NDA’s candidate from Hassan Lok Sabha segment, is facing charges of multiple instances of sexually abusing women.

A Special Court for Elected Representatives had issued an arrest warrant against Prajwal Revanna, following an application moved by the SIT.

Home Minister G Parameshwara on Wednesday had said there is no response yet from the Centre, regarding the request seeking cancellation of the diplomatic passport of Prajwal.
