Bangalore: Railway Minister DV Sadananda Gowda's son Karthik presented himself before the Bangalore Police on Monday in connection with alleged rape, kidnap and cheating of a Kannada actress.

Karthik is currently out on bail, but has been asked to present himself at the police station every 15 days. He continues to insist that he is being framed.

He said, "The case is still in court so I don't want to talk about it. It's false."

Days after securing an anticipatory bail, Karthik had on September 12 appeared before police for the first time and faced a marathon questioning by them before being subjected to a medical test.

During questioning, Karthik had 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 probe. A magistrate court had earlier issued an 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. Her claim came 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.
