Bengaluru court has dismissed the bail application of former Member of Parliament, Prajwal Revanna, in the ongoing Holenarasipur case. The decision, reserved for today, was announced by Justice Santosh Gajanana Bhatt of the 82nd Sessions Court.

Prajwal Revanna, who was seeking bail, had his plea heard by a special court dedicated to cases involving People's Representatives. His advocate, Arun, presented arguments in favour of granting bail, while BN Jagadish represented the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), arguing against it.
