The Bangalore city police have served notice to Karthik Gowda, son of Railways Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, in connection with the rape and cheating case registered against him based on the complaint lodged by a Kannada actress earlier this week.

S Ravi, Joint Commissioner of Police for Law and Order (west), who is supervising the case, said the RT Nagar police, who registered the case against Karthik, had served the notice on Friday, asking him to appear before the Investigation Officer for inquiry.

“We had served a notice to Karthik Gowda and he did not appear before the police for the investigation until Saturday evening. The case is going on the right track and it has not reached the stage of arrest,” Ravi said.

The RT Nagar police said that they have recorded the statement of the complainant. She also appeared before the 8th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court and gave her statement on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Karthik filed an anticipatory bail application before the city civil and session court through his advocate on Saturday. The petition was admitted and the court issued notice to the RT Nagar police. The hearing is slated for September 3.

    It may be consensual between two adults. The lady must have strong evidence to show that he cheated her promising marriage and then had . The so called marriage may not be valid as it was not registered. The guy will escape technically

    Why cheating? It can be invoked only if the incident involves obtaining a thing or a valuable security : surely having consensual , even when based on promise of marriage, is neither.

    Why the air quotes over rape? It is a rape case. He may be innocent or guilty, time will tell. But the air quotes over rape is like ping a premature judgement.
