Hearing of Darshan case deferred to January

Hearing of Darshan case deferred to January

The judge took the decision as the Vijayanagar police had not filed the charge sheet against Darshan after his wife, Vijayalakshmi, filed a complaint accusing him of attempt to murder her.

The court also gave the police time to file the chargesheet and a final report on the investigation into the complaints filed by Darshan’s wife.

A police officer said: “We are yet to collect evidence and continue investigation. With over 580 complaints registered at the Vijayanagar police station, it is difficult to complete the task in a short span.”

Darshan’s counsel said the hearing was deferred to next year as it was a ‘minor’ issue.
“The courts take cases on priority basis. If the accused was lodged in jail, then it is mandatory to conduct the hearing within 14 days,” the advocate said.
On the absence of the actor for the hearing, the advocate said he had sent representatives to appear before the court for such ‘small hearings’, as is the usually norm.

 Darshan was arrested by the Vijayanagar police on September 9, a day after the actor assaulted his wife.

He moved the High Court after the ACMM Court rejected his bail application.
Darshan got conditional bail on October 7 and was counselled by High Court Judge B V Pinto on October 13.
