Darshan Thoogudeepa

Darshan Thoogudeepa, one of top stars in the Kannada cinema industry, was arrested on Tuesday in relation to a murder case. The actor was apprehended at his farm house in Mysuru. The murder was allegedly perpetrated in Mysuru, and the body was discovered in Kamakshipalya in Bengaluru.


The Bengaluru police were conducting an investigation into the murder of Renukaswamy. After interrogating nine individuals in relation to the murder of Renukaswamy, Darshan’s name was implicated, prompting the police to arrest him.

Renukaswamy is rumored to have been murdered due to his suspected harassment of actress Pavithra Gowda, who is believed to be in a live-in relationship with Darshan.

As per the police, Renukaswamy, who is originally from Chitradurga, was asked to come to Darshan’s farm house in Mysuru. It is believed that the accused subjected him to torture and subsequently murdered him. The body was then disposed of in a drain in Kamakshipalya two months ago.

In January of this year, Kannada actress Pavithra Gowda shared photographs of herself with Darshan, revealing that they have been in a romantic relationship for ten years. Conversely, Darshan’s wife levied numerous accusations against him.
