Kannada actor Kichcha Sudeep speaks on Karnataka murder case involving Darshan Thoogudeepa

Bengaluru/IBNS: Kannada film star Kichcha Sudeep has broken his silence on the case pertaining to the murder of 33-year-old Renukaswamy allegedly by actor Darshan Thoogudeepa.

Speaking to the media, Sudeep said as quoted by India Today, "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."

"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," the actor said without taking the name of his colleague.

Earlier, Kannada actress-politician Divya Spandana aka Ramya had demanded justice for Renukaswamy.

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

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 Renukaswamy 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.
