BENGALURU: Interior Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Sunday his government was ready to protect the woman who would appear in a sex clip implicating former minister Ramesh Jarkiholi.
“I have asked the head of SIT to ensure adequate security for her and her family if she is willing to cooperate with the investigation,” he said. This follows a video message that was reportedly released by the woman shortly after Ramesh Jarkiholi filed a complaint against strangers on Saturday.
In the 34-second clip, the woman urges Bommai to protect her. “I don’t know how the video was recorded and disseminated to the media, but since its release my modesty has been outraged as my family’s reputation is gone forever. No one is there to protect our family. We have no political support. He attracted me with a job offer, “she says in the video, the authenticity of which remains to be verified.
Cong to raise the issue during the session, request an investigation
Following the message, Jarkiholi rushed to Bommai’s residence. “Less than an hour after I filed my complaint, it surfaced in another video. This is a clear case of a political conspiracy against me. Let her go out and complain, ”he said.
As the budget session resumes after a four-day recess on Monday, the main opposition Congress has decided to raise the issue and call for an investigation into the incident, in addition to urging the government to provide protection to the wife. “I don’t want to talk about it in public. Whatever I want to say, I will reveal it to the assembly, ”said opposition leader Siddaramaiah.
KPCC chairman DK Shivakumar in Shivamogga said he suspected the BJP to be behind the CD scandal. But his colleague and brother of Ramesh, Satish Jarkiholi, incumbent chairman of the party, did not echo his point of view. “You can’t fix someone without proof. It all depends on the outcome of the SIT investigation. Ramesh has already lodged a complaint and the woman should reveal what injustice has been inflicted on her so that the truth will come out, ”he told Dharwad.
Satish said if there was a plot to slander Ramesh, he would be unearthed by SIT. “There should be no rush to bring this matter to its logical end,” Satish added.
