Darshan Thoogudeepa is currently under police custody over his alleged involvement in the murder of Renuka Swamy. According to reports, the 33-year-old victim was a fan of Darshan and had apparently made some obscene comments against the actor’s rumored lover Pavithra Gowda.

As per reports, Pavithra Gowda had sought the help of Darshan in dealing with this situation and allegedly constructed a plan to murder the victim. According to the autopsy report that came to light recently, Renuka Swamy suffered from electric shocks and was subjected to multiple blunt injuries.

Moreover, the victim was also said to have suffered a ruptured testicle during the alleged torture. Reports also state that the victim was gruesomely tortured by multiple weapons, allegedly inside the actor’s shed and his body was dumped in a drainage.
