Kannada actor Darshan’s farmhouse manager dies by suicide

In a fresh twist to the murder case involving popular Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa and his friend Pavithra Gowda, Sridhar, manager of the actor’s farmhouse, was found dead at the farmhouse in Bengaluru.

According to media reports, Sridhar died by suicide. He left behind a suicide note and video message in which he requested the police not to involve his family members in the investigation and claimed full responsibility for the extreme step, reported Times of India.

The deceased cited the feeling of loneliness as the reason for deciding to end his life.

Meanwhile, the police have begun a probe to determine if the suicide has anything to do with the ongoing investigation into the murder case involving Darshan.

As many as 17 people, including Darshan and Pavithra Gowda, have been arrested in connection with the murder of Renukaswamy, who had allegedly sent some obscene messages to Gowda on social media.

Meanwhile, Karnataka Home Minister G. Parameshwara said there was no need to hand over the Renukaswamy murder case to the CBI as the police were doing a good job in their investigation without succumbing to any pressure.

“There should not be any politics in this case. I am saying this because I have seen various reports in the media. This incident should not have happened, but it did. There could have been some statements but we will not bow to any pressure,” Parameshwara said.
