On Tuesday, first Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Venkatesh Hulagi had rejected bail plea filed by Darshan, who is now undergoing treatment for asthma and jaundice in a hospital. Venkatesh stated that he did not have jurisdiction to handle the case filed under IPC Section 307, which deals with the case of attempt to murder.
However, Darshan was arrested on September 9 and produced before a Magistrate, who had remanded him to judicial custody. Several leading Kannada film personalities have tried to bring about a patch-up between Darshan and his wife. So, his wife came forward to withdraw her complaint on Monday stating that she sustained head injuries during a fall in bathroom.
