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

 Karthik, who came to the police along with his advocate early on Friday, faced a marathon questioning by police who also took him for medical examination.

During questioning, Karthik rejected the allegations and said he had not married the starlet as claimed by her. The Sessions court had granted anticipatory bail to Karthik and asked him to cooperate with police in the investigation.

 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.
