Actress Pavithra Gowda, identified as the primary accused (A1) in Renukaswamy murder case, has been remanded to judicial custody. Following the conclusion of her police custody, Pavithra, along with other accused, was presented before the court on June 20.

The case revolves around the murder of Renukaswamy from Chitradurga, who was reportedly sending obscene messages to Pavithra Gowda.

Among the accused are prominent figures, including actor Darshan Thoogudeepa (A2), Pawan, Vinay, Pradosh, Nagaraj, and Laxman.

The investigation is being conducted by the Annapurneswari Nagar Police Station in Bengaluru. Significant evidence has already been collected, and various locations have been inspected as part of the investigative process. This includes a detailed search at Pavithra Gowda's residence. Despite the progress, the investigation is still ongoing, with efforts to uncover more details and evidence.

During the court session, the judge ordered Pavithra Gowda's transfer to judicial custody. As a result, she will now be held at Parappana Agrahara Jail. This development marks a critical phase in the legal proceedings against her.

Following the court's decision, Pavithra Gowda's daughter, Khushi Gowda, along with her grandmother, visited the court to meet her.
