The case was filed after actress Maitreyi filed a complaint saying he had married her and then got engaged to another woman on Wednesday. The police have slapped sections 376 (misusing position to get sexual favor), 420 ( cheating) and 406 (criminals breach of trust) against Karthik. Kannada channel TV 9 telecast a story about a woman named Maitreyi who alleged that Karthik Gowda and she had gotten married, and that his parents also knew about their marriage. Sadananda Gowda however, has denied that Karthik was involved with any other woman other than Swati. Maitreyi told TV 9 she met Karthik in May this year and that they became close. She claimed that he wanted to have a physical relationship, and she refused to have one unless they were married.
