Bengaluru: The parents of the woman in the former minister Ramesh Jarakiholi case alleged that their daughter is held hostage by Karnataka Congress president DK Shivakumar.


They also said that Shivakumar has sent her to Goa forcefully.

Earlier in the day D K Shivakumar said he has never met the woman in the purported sex video allegedly involving former Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi, as the row took a new twist with the surfacing of an audio clip in which she can be heard taking his name.

in her fourth video statement released, the woman has authenticated the conversation in the audio clip and said she had gone to meet Shivakumar, but could not.

The woman said she got scared when the video was aired by news channels and got in touch with a person named Naresh, who works in the media for help. The man then advised her to seek state Congress President D K Shivakumar’s help, using the contacts he has.


“… as I was getting repeated calls from family members who were frightened and my parents were crying. I tried convincing my mother and told that I was going to Shivakumar’s house to talk to him,” she said, adding that she had gone to the Congress leader’s residence along with Naresh but was unable to meet him, and had to return as things were developing fast.
