In an incident that sent shockwaves across Karnataka, popular Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa and 16 others were arrested for the alleged murder of Renukaswamy, a resident of Chitradurga. A fan of Darshan, Renukaswamy was tracked down by the actor’s fan groups before being abducted to Bengaluru, tortured and murdered over his social media activities against Pavithra Gowda, Darshan’s partner and a co-accused in the case.

Following the arrest of the star, his fans started romanticising his prisoner number over the internet. ‘6106′, his prisoner number, reportedly tattooed it and got it stickered on their vehicles. According to news agency IANS, the film chamber has also been approached for registration of titles like ‘Khaidi no 6106′. The authorities have expressed concern about these developments.

The photoshoot, however, has landed the parents of the baby in trouble as the Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has taken suo moto cognizance of the matter. The police department has been instructed to identify the whereabouts of the parents at the earliest by the child rights body, IANS said.

The Commission maintains that to make the child wear jail uniform and getting him photographed in a setting involving handcuffs and other prison references needs to be dealt with legally as it is a clear violation of the Juvenile Justice Act.
