The Uncut

Bangalore. Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara on Wednesday said the police have been given a free hand to take legal action against popular Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeep and his associates arrested in a murder case. He said the police will investigate the matter and also find out if Darshan is a “habitual offender”. After that, appropriate legal action will be taken against him, he said. Meanwhile, the police on Wednesday took four associates of Thoogudeep to Pattanagere here for investigation at the spot where the murder took place. Nikhil, Vinay, Karthik and Raghavendra are among the 12 associates who were arrested along with Darshan on Tuesday for the murder of the actor’s fan Renukaswamy.

Parameshwar told reporters here, “He (Darshan) was arrested from Mysore to Bangalore on the charge of murdering his fan Renukaswamy. He is being questioned. Action will be taken on the basis of whatever comes out in the investigation. The law is equal for everyone, whether it is Darshan or Parameshwar. Therefore, no one should take the law into their own hands.” Darshan, popularly known as ‘Challenging Star’, and his 12 associates were arrested on Tuesday on the charge of murdering the actor’s 33-year-old fan Renukaswamy.

According to police sources, Renukaswamy, a resident of the district headquarters town of Chitradurga, had allegedly made comments on social media against Darshan’s close friend and actress Pavithra Gowda. Renukaswamy had accused the actress of creating a rift between Darshan and his wife. The deceased allegedly used “abusive language” and also shared objectionable messages.

Parameshwara said, “If Renukaswamy had posted something on social media about Darshan’s girlfriend, he could have complained and the police would have acted on it immediately. The information is that he (Renukaswamy) was brought from Chitradurga to Bengaluru, beaten and then killed. This could have been avoided.” He said, “Now the incident has happened, a person has lost his life and no one can do anything. But whatever action is to be taken against the culprits according to the law, the police will do it.”

On the question of attempts being made by Darshan to save himself through influential leaders, the Home Minister said that as far as he knows, such efforts have not been made and action will be taken in the matter according to the law. G. Parameshwara said, “No one from the government will interfere in this. The police have been given complete freedom and they will take action in this matter according to the law.”

Actor Darshan arrested: Shocking information revealed in murder case investigation

Shocking details have emerged in the investigation into the murder of a man who allegedly made derogatory comments against Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeep’s friend and co-star. According to police sources, Renukaswamy (33) made derogatory comments against Pavithra Gowda on a social media post, which angered Darshan.

He said, “It was Pavithra who instigated Darshan to punish Renukaswamy and a plan was made accordingly.” Renukaswamy was a resident of Lakshmi Venkateswara Layout in Chitradurga and worked in a pharmacy company. According to sources, “Darshan involved Darshan Fan Club convenor Raghavendra alias Raghu of Chitradurga unit in the plan, who obtained all the information about Renukaswamy.” Renukaswamy’s wife Sahana said that Raghavendra took her husband from near their house on Friday night. Sources said the victim was kidnapped and taken to a hut in Kamakshipalya area of ​​Bengaluru.

He said there were multiple fractures in the bones all over his (Renukaswamy’s) body. “Darshan beat Renukaswamy with a belt and when he fell unconscious, his companions beat him with sticks. They also threw him against a wall which proved fatal,” he said. After he died, his body was dumped in a rainwater drain. When a food delivery boy saw dogs eating a human body, he informed the police.

During the investigation into the case, two accused approached the Kamakshipalya police and confessed that they killed Renukaswamy due to a financial dispute. As the investigation progressed, the police found the involvement of Darshan and Pavitra. Darshan, his friend and film actress Pavitra Gowda and 11 others were arrested on Tuesday in connection with Renukaswamy’s murder. The actor (47) has been sent to six-day police custody by a court.
