We give a geometric realization of cohomologically induced (g,K)(\mathfrak{g},K)-modules. Let (h,L)(\mathfrak{h}, L) be a subpair of (g,K)(\mathfrak{g},K). The cohomological induction is an algebraic construction of (g,K)(\mathfrak{g},K)-modules from a (h,L)(\mathfrak{h},L)-module VV. For a real semisimple Lie group, the duality theorem by Hecht, Mili{\v{c}}i{\'c}, Schmid, and Wolf relates (g,K)(\mathfrak{g},K)-modules cohomologically induced from a Borel subalgebra with D{\mathcal D}-modules on the flag variety of g\frak{g}. In this article we extend the theorem for more general pairs (g,K)(\mathfrak{g},K) and (h,L)(\mathfrak{h},L). We consider the tensor product of a D{\mathcal D}-module and a certain module associated with VV, and prove that its sheaf cohomology groups are isomorphic to cohomologically induced modules.
