Actor Darshan, Pavithra Gowda arrested in murder case


Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa is known for courting controversies. He has been described by a section of the Sandalwood media as the bad boy of the Kannada film industry, having been accused of even domestic violence and possessing things illegally in the past.

Earlier today, he was arrested for his alleged, unproven role in the murder of a man named Renukaswamy (33) in Karnataka. Hours later, his wife and actress Pavithra Gowda was also picked up. In all, 12 individuals were taken into custody by the police.

The victim had been sending Pavithra obnoxious texts. His dead body was recovered by the police, following which a preliminary investigation was launched. Based on the findings, they picked up both Darshan and Pavithra.

As per Hindustan Times, three individuals have already confessed to murdering Renuka on the instructions given by Darshan.

It is not clear how the victim, an ordinary person, had access to the phone number of a celebrity. The deceased person was tortured to death.
