(MENAFN- IANS) Bengaluru, May 31 (IANS) Absconding JD-S MP and the prime accused in the sex video scandal in Karnataka, Prajwal Revanna, landed at the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru in the wee hours of Friday.

The grandson of former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda, Prajwal Revanna had left the country on April 26, following the first phase of Lok Sabha elections in Karnataka after the alleged sex video scandal came to light.

The SIT officers were stationed at the airport since the evening to take him into custody.

Two battalions of the Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) and more than 50 police personnel have been deployed at the entrance of the CID headquarters as a preventive measure.

Prajwal Revanna arrived here on Lufthansa flight No. LH764 from Munich on a business class ticket.
