New Delhi, Sep 8, 2014: Law will take its own course" was the terse reply of Railway Minister Sadandada Gowda today when he was asked about his "missing" son who is wanted by police in a case of rape lodged against him by a Kannada actress.
"I have spoken about it several times. Law will take its own course. I have nothing more to say," he told reporters at a press conference organised to share his ministry’s "achievements" in the first 100 days of the BJP government.
His son Karthik Gowda has been accused of rape by the actress who has alleged that he developed relations with her after promising to marrying her. She went to police after he was engaged to another girl.
The minister declined to comment on the CBI probe into the contract between Indian Railways-owned IRCTC and the tainted company Saradha Group for operating tourist services to different destinations.
"CBI is investigating. Further comments from me would be interference in investigation," he said.
The contract came about when TMC chief and West Bengal Chief Minister was the railway minister. Some of her party leaders are being investigated for their links with the company accused of cheating people.
