BENGALURU: The Bengaluru police arrested famous Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa. He was arrested after being taken into custody Tuesday morning for interrogation in a murder case. Deputy Police Commissioner S Girish confirmed his arrest. However, he refused to respond to the media on matters related to the case.


Deccan Herald reported that Darshan was caught from a private hotel near Chamarajendra Zoological Garden in Mysore. The police said Darshan has contact with the three arrested in the murder case of Renuka Swamy, a native of Chitradurga.


The body of Renuka Swamy was found in Bengaluru's Kamakshipalya two months ago. There were injuries on his head and many parts of the body. The police suspect that Swamy was killed because he had sent an obscene message on social media to Darshan's close friend, actress Pavitra Gowda. Nine people having connections with Pavitra Gowda were taken into custody.


Darshan, who traced Swamy's house to take revenge, directed a three-member team to kidnap him. The police also suspect that after taking him to the farmhouse owned by Darshan, many have killed and dumped the body in the drain in Kamakshipalya.

The investigation started on the missing complaint of Swamy. Within days, three surrendered in the station saying that they killed Swamy due to financial problems. However, the police had not believed this. Grilling them turned to Darshan later.
