Amid the ongoing probe of Renukaswamy's murder, Karnataka’s Congress MLA Uday Gowda has come forward to defend actor Darshan amid his arrest in the case. Speaking to the media, Gowda addressed various issues, including accusations against Darshan and an alleged attack on his gunman.

"Darshan is not a murderer. Yes, he can get a little grumpy and angry, but that doesn't make him a criminal," stated Gowda firmly. He explained that while Darshan may speak harshly to fans and the media at times, it does not justify the severe accusations being thrown at him.

Responding to the news of an alleged attack on his gunman, Gowda expressed surprise and disbelief. "Who told you all this? There is no such incident," he asserted. Gowda emphasized that a police investigation is currently underway, and it is premature to draw any conclusions. "Let's talk after the investigation is over," he added.

Gowda continued to vouch for Darshan's character, stressing their long-standing friendship. "Darshan has been my friend for many years. He is irritable and angry sometimes, but he's not a butcher who commits murder. I don't know if he acted in this manner or if those around him did something wrong," Gowda said. He also emphasized the importance of allowing the investigation to reveal the truth. "Everything should come out from the investigation. I don't want to say anything right now. Authorities are investigating, and the truth will come out in a few days. The people of the state will know."

Addressing the specific issue of Darshan's supporters allegedly attacking his gunman, Gowda dismissed the claims as false. "I don't know if my gunman was attacked. It's all lies. I have five or six gunmen. Wouldn't I have known if one of them had been assaulted? Nothing happened. All that is just a false creation," he concluded.
