No one is above the law: Divya Spandana on Darshan Thoogudeepa's arrest in Karnataka murder case

Bengaluru/IBNS: "No one is above the law," says actress-turned-politician Divya Spandana aka Ramya reacting to the arrest of her colleague, Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa in the Karnataka murder case.

In a long Instagram story, Divya wrote, "No one is above the law. No one should take 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."

Praising police's action, she said, "A word of appreciation and respect for the police officers discharging their duties. It's a thankless job. And they're doing their best.

"I truly hope they don't succumb to pressure from political parties and reinstate the faith of the people in law and justice."

Darshan, his girlfriend Pavithra Gowda and 11 others have so far been arrested in connection with the murder of 33-year-old Renuka Swamy.

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's aides reportedly carried Renuka Swamy in a taxi from Chitradurga to their Bengaluru hideout where they tortured the victim to death.

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.

Divya, a former Congress MP, ended her Instagram post with #JusticeforRenukaswamy, #Darshan, #Yedyurappa, #PrajwalRevanna.

The actress-politician used the hashtags referring to the sexual harassment charges brought against former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yedyurappa and sexual abuse allegations brought against now arrested, suspended JDS leader Prajwal Revanna.
