Karnataka Sex Video: Jarkiholi Declares War Over DK Shivakumar For Dirty Politics

28 Mar, 2021 10:40 IST|Sakshi Post

The Karnataka Sex CD Case has taken a new turn after the parents of the woman in the purported video blamed state Congress chief D K Shivakumar. They accused him of playing “dirty politics” by using their daughter. Ramesh Jarkiholi, who has been hinting about the involvement of a big leader behind the video clip and its leak, named Shivakumar for the first time for indulging in such a “filthy conspiracy”.

He also announced a political and legal battle against him. Shivakumar on his part, however, said, he has nothing to do with the case as he had never met the woman before. "Let the investigation happen," he said.

Following the developments, the woman released a video statement, her fifth, and claimed her parents were speaking under the influence of someone and after seeing all this, she was scared to appear before the SIT to give her statement. The woman’s parents and brothers, on Saturday, appeared before the Special Investigation Team which is probing the scandal.

The victim's parents were subjected to almost six hours of questioning on their complaint of kidnap and the woman’s video clip. “We have evidence, we have spoken to SIT officials and have given it to them, we will give it to you (media) as well. My daughter is an example of politics being played using a Schedule Tribe (ST) woman,” the woman’s father told reporters after appearing before the SIT. “If anything happens to our family, DK Shivakumar is responsible for it,” he said.

“I’m an ex-soldier, I have guarded the country, can’t I guard my daughter..for your dirty politics why are you using a woman for all these things. Send her back to us,” he said.

Hours after police registered an FIR against Jarkiholi for sexual abuse based on the woman’s complaint on Friday, the first purported unauthenticated recording of a telephonic conversation between her and family members had surfaced in which she can be heard talking about reportedly going to Shivakumar’s house to meet him.

The audio clip had triggered sharp reactions, with Karnataka BJP attacking Shivakumar and demanding that Congress seek his resignation as party’s state unit chief. Jarkiholi, who spoke to the media minutes after statements by the woman’s parents, said he will be fighting Shivakumar both legally and politically. Jarkiholi also claimed he has some evidence and will hand them over to the SIT.
