Sudeep on Darshan’s arrest in fan murder case: ‘That family deserves justice. That girl deserves justice’ | Regional News

When popular Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa was recently arrested in connection with the murder of 33-year-old Renukaswamy, it sent shockwaves across the Kannada film industry. Renukaswamy, a fan of Darshan, allegedly sent obscene texts to actress Pavithra Gowda, who is said to be in a relationship with the Kateera actor. Pavithra is also among the 16 people arrested in connection with the murder of Renukaswamy.

In a recent media interaction, Kannada star Kichcha Sudeep addressed Darshan’s arrest in the fan murder case, emphasising the need for justice for the victim Renukaswamy’s wife and his unborn child. Sudeep also noted the widespread blame directed at the film industry and expressed hope that it would be exonerated once the real culprit is punished.

Without directly naming Darshan, Sudeep remarked, “We are only aware of what the media is showing to us because we are not going to the police station to get the information. It looks like the media and the police are working hard to uncover the truth. There’s no doubt about that.” Sudeep and Darshan were once close friends but had a falling out due to irreconcilable differences.

Sudeep then called for justice for Renukaswamy’s family, stating, “That family deserves justice. That girl deserves justice. Renukaswamy, who died on the streets, deserves justice. The unborn child deserves justice. Above all, everyone should have faith in justice, and justice should prevail in this case.”

Sudeep also commented on the negative impact the murder case has had on the Kannada film industry. “Everyone’s heart goes out to that family. The atmosphere doesn’t feel right. The film industry should get justice. All the blame seems to be placed on the film industry. The industry needs a clean chit. There are many artistes involved. Cinema is not just one or two people. The film industry will be relieved if the culprit is punished,” he said.

Earlier, Kannada actress and former Congress leader Divya Spandana addressed Darshan’s arrest. The actor wrote, “There’s a block option given on social media for a reason. If the trolling persists, you file a complaint. The trolls have trolled me incessantly using filthy language. Not just me, they’ve trolled other actors too. They haven’t spared their wives and children either. What a sad society we live in. I have filed cases like any law-abiding citizen should. Sometimes post a warning from the police to the trolls I’ve taken back the case too on compassionate grounds.”

Condemning the incident, she added, “I’ve also considered the fact that these people are young and have a future ahead and they’re ruining/wasting their lives by trolling using anonymous handles. No one is above the law. No one should take the law into their hands. You don’t go around beating up people and killing them. A simple complaint would suffice whether you believe justice will be served or not.”
