The court's action comes amidst mounting legal troubles for Prajwal, who is facing three separate sexual assault charges filed by different women. These charges led to issue a blue corner notice against him by Interpol, indicating his status as a fugitive wanted for questioning.

In response to the allegations and the public outcry, the Karnataka government has established a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate Prajwal's alleged crimes.
