BENGALURU: A lewd video, allegedly of former Union minister DV Sadananda Gowda, has gone viral on Facebook and other social media platforms, and been widely shared on Sunday.
Gowda attempted to set the record straight, and tweeted, “Malefactors, who are upset by my rise on the political front, have brought out a fake, lewd video of mine for my fall. The video has become viral on social media, which pains me. A complaint has been filed with the authorities concerned, to arrest and punish the guilty immediately.’’
A formal complaint filed on Sunday by one Thamme Gowda with the Police Commissioner, DCP North and ACP, R T Nagar, said, “I have reliably learnt that a politically motivated fake, fabricated, concocted video has been made by making use of our MP D V Sadananda Gowda. The same is being circulated on social media. The video came to be created by way of impersonation.’’
