Darshan Thoogudeepa involved murder case: Renukaswamy's testicles were ruptured, face was half-eaten by dogs

Bengaluru/IBNS: Police probe into the murder of 33-year-old Renukaswamy, who was allegedly killed by Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa and his aides, has revealed some chilling facts about how the victim was tortured to death.

The probe has found out that Renukaswamy's testicles were ruptured and had an ear missing, media reports said.

Renukaswamy's face was half-eaten by dogs when the victim's body was found in the drain.

The victim was tied, beaten up with sticks and was given electric shocks before his body dumped in the drains of Kamakshipalya, probe report finds.

Genesis of the murder

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.
