Victim forced to register fake complaint against Prajwal Revanna: NCW

Date:

The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Thursday clarified that no victim has come forward to register a complaint against Karnataka MP Prajwal Revanna, and one woman complainant who reached out to the commission alleged that she was forced to register a fake complaint against the JD(S) leader.

The commission also refuted the claims made by several media organisations that 700 women filed complaints regarding Prajwal Revanna case.

“700 women who submitted online complaints are affiliated with a social activist group and has no direct involvement or association with the primary complainant in the case,” the commission said.

In response to the distressing reports circulating in the media, the NCW initiated suo motu action, demonstrating its unwavering commitment to upholding the rights and dignity of women.

The timely submission of the Action Taken Report by the concerned authorities revealed several significant findings, the commission said.

The report indicated the registration of two cases based on complaints of sexual abuse by the victims, alongside an additional complaint filed for abduction by a relative.

“No victim has come forward to register a complaint in NCW this case. One woman complainant came to the commission to register a complaint against three individuals dressed in civil uniform, allegedly introducing themselves as Karnataka Police officials and forcing her to give a false complaint in this case.

She stated that she is being called by random phone numbers threatening her to complaint,” the NCW said in its statement.

“It has come to light that this complainant was forced by a group of individuals to file a complaint, under the threat of potential harassment and false implications. The victim has sought protection for her family’s welfare, underscoring the seriousness of the situation,” it said.

“In a separate development, it has been noted that the 700 women who submitted online complaints are affiliated with a social activist group and has no direct involvement or association with the primary complainant in the case,” NCW said.

The commission further said that it remains committed to thoroughly investigating their concerns, maintaining ongoing communication with the Karnataka Police authorities.
