Actor Darshan's bail plea adjourned to Oct 7

Justice B V Pinto adjourned the bail plea after directing Special Public Prosecutor Vijay Kumar Majjige to file his objection against Darshan's bail plea by October 7. Darshan, presently lodged in Parappana Agrahara central prison, will be produced before the magistrate today.

The Court had on Sept 22 adjourned his bail plea by two weeks after Darshan's counsel moved the court for an early hearing. The actor moved the High Court after both the magistrate and sessions court rejected his bail petition.

The sessions court had rejected his bail plea on the ground he was influential and could bring pressure on the complainant (his wife,Vijaylakshmi), witnesses and tamper with evidence.

The magisterial court did not accept Vijayalakshmi's prayer to withdraw her complaint and rejected Darshan's bail plea on the ground that the crime committed under IPC section 307 (attempt to murder) did not fall under its jurisdiction.

Vijaylakshmi had told the court she sustained head injuries during a fall in the bathroom. This ran contrary to her allegations in a police complaint on Sept 8 that Darshan had assaulted and threatened her with a revolver. Darshan was on Sept 21 taken back to prison after discharge from state-run Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases where he was being treated for asthma and jaundice since Sep 10.

Darshan was arrested on Sept 9 following the complaint.
