“The police have registered a case against HD Revanna, his relative Sathish Babu, and five others under IPC sections 364A (kidnapping for ransom), 365 (kidnapping with intent to secretly and wrongfully confine a person), and 34 (common intention),’’ a police officer part of the investigation team of SIT said.

“Revanna secured bail in the case on May 14 after spending 10 days in judicial custody. Sathish Babu had called her over the phone during the kidnapping, which was confirmed by call detail records (CDR). As part of the investigation, SIT served notice to Bhavani to question her,” he added.

The advocate who filed the application on behalf of Bhavani Revanna argued in court that the SIT did not mention under which rules the notice has been issued to Bhavani Revanna. He requested that his client be granted bail as it is unknown whether there is any need for her arrest. The bench, which heard the petition, directed the SIT to answer the questions raised by Bhavani Revanna’s counsel. The hearing of the petition was posted on Tuesday.

Seven people, including HD Revanna, have been arrested in this case so far. Among them, Revanna got bail. According to people familiar with the matter, the abducted woman had mentioned Bhavani Revanna’s name in her statement, and due to that, Bhavani was facing a threat of arrest.
