Karnataka murder case involving actor Darshan: Driver who transported victim from Chitradurga to Bengaluru surrenders

Bengaluru/IBNS: In a new development in the Karnataka murder case involving Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa, the taxi driver, who transported the victim Renukaswamy from Chitradurga to Bengaluru, has surrendered.

Ravi, the driver, has surrendered before police on advice of Taxi Association in Chitradurga after hiding for days following the incident.

Darshan's aides reportedly carried Renukaswamy in Ravi's taxi from Chitradurga to their Bengaluru hideout where they tortured the victim to death.

According to police, the victim had posted an objectionable comment on Kannada actress Pavithra Gowda's Instagram handle accusing her of causing a rift between Thoogudeepa and his wife Vijaya Lakshmi.

This happened after Pavithra posted an Instagram video celebrating his 10-year relationship with Darshan, who has been married to Vijaya Lakshmi for 20 years.

Darshan, Pavithra and 11 others have so far been arrested in connection with the murder.

After allegedly beating to death, Renukaswamy's body was dumped in a stormwater drain at an area which falls under Kamakshipalya Police Station.

Police reportedly got to know from a food delivery man who saw a dog eating the body of the victim.
