The local police in Bengaluru was investigating the murder of one Renuka Swamy, who originally belonged to Chitradurga. It had taken nine persons for questioning in connection with the murder of Renuka Swamy when Darshan’s name was also mentioned following which the police took him into custody.

It is being said that Renuka Swamy was allegedly murdered for online harassment of Pavithra Gowda, a close friend of Mr. Darshan.

According to the police, Renuka Swamy, a native of Chitradurga, was called to the Mysuru farm house owned by Darshan, where the accused allegedly tortured and killed him before dumping the body in a drain in Kamakshipalya two months ago.

Initial probe led the police to a missing person’s complaint registered in Chitradurga. During the course of the investigation, three persons surrendered claiming that they killed Renuka Swamy due to financial issue. However, further investigation led them to Darshan.

As news of the arrest spread, policemen were posted around the actor’s residence at Rajarajeshwari Nagar in Bengaluru.
