A Bangalore court on Thursday issued an arrest warrant against Union Railway Minister D V Sadananda Gowda’s son Karthik Gowda who has been accused by a Kannada actress of rape and cheating.
Earlier, Karthik had moved the city sessions court for anticipatory bail in the case and the court had adjourned the case for further hearing to September 4.
The Kannada actress had claimed that she had married Karthik on June 5 after meeting him on May 8.
While Karthik Gowda got engaged to another woman in Kushalnagar, Kodagu, his father Sadananda Gowda rejected the allegations against his son alleging a conspiracy.
Gowda said that he was shocked to see that report and added that his personal and public life was an open book.
He had also said that it seemed suspicious that the woman had filed the complaint hours after his son Karthik’s engagement.
