Order on Darshan's bail plea posted to tomorrow

Public Prosecutor Amrut Kumar earlier objected to the granting of bail.

The actor's wife, Vijayalakshmi, who had accused her husband of assaulting her and threatening her with a revolver, appeared before the court of First Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Venkatesh Hulagi and retracted her statement, saying she sustained injuries due to a fall in the bathroom.

In another development police filed a requisition before the court to amend the FIR by dropping IPC section 307 (attempt to murder) clause and replacing it by IPC 324 (assault causing minor injuries).

Darshan was arrested on September 9 for alleged assault and harassment of his wife with whom he was having a discord for the past one year. He was remanded to judicial custody that day.
