Earlier, Darshan's lawyer SK Venkatareddy had pleaded the Sessions Court judge to issue bail to the actor by considering Vijayalakshmi's willingness for reconciliation with her husband. But public prosecutor SC Agasimani had opposed issuing the bail to him. After hearing their arguments, judge BR Budihal reserved the judgment for today.
The Sessions Court judge has rejected Darshan's bail application today. In his 21 pages order, judge Budihal has explained reasons for rejecting the actor's plea. But Darshan's attorney Venkatareddy has planned to appeal in High Court on Wednesday for the bail.
However, Darshan was arrested on September 9 after his wife Vijayalakshmi alleged that he assaulted her and threatened to kill her and her son. Later, his wife retracted her statement in the court on Monday, September 12. But his bail plea was rejected on September 14 by the First Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Venkatesh Hulagi.
