Railway Minister's son appears before police

Days after securing an anticipatory bail, Railway Minister D V Sadananda Gowda's son Karthik Gowda today appeared before police who questioned him in connection with a complaint of alleged rape, kidnap and cheating of a Kannada actress.

Karthik who came to the police along with his advocate in the morning faced a marathon questioning by police, who also took him for medical examination, police said.

"Yes he has appeared before us. He was investigated," ACP Omkaraiah, part of the team that questioned Karthik, told PTI.

During questioning, Karthik rejected the allegations and said he had not married the starlet as claimed by her, police said.

The Sessions court had granted anticipatory bail to Karthik and asked him to cooperate with police in the probe.

The relief came to Karthik three days after a magistrate court issued arrest warrant against him with police declaring him an absconder and forming teams to trace him.

The actress had claimed she and Karthik got married at Gowda's residence in Mangalore in June. She has made several claims in the case giving different twists and turns with her purported telephonic conversation with Karthik being released to the media.

The starlet had made the claim about the marriage on the day Karthik got engaged to another woman at Kushalnagar in Kodagu district. Her allegations caused severe embarrassment to the Union Minister who has maintained law will take its own course.
