Kannada film star Darshan's bail plea has been rejected by Judge Venkatesha Huligi of the Metropolitan Magistrate Court despite his wife Ms. Vijayalakshmi retracting her police complaint on the actor and even police helping out by charging him with Section 324 instead of the more draconian Section 307. The rejection of bail application means that Darshan may have to be cool his heals in judicial custody for some more days.
Darshan has been recouping from his Jaundice and Asthma complications in the Rajiv Gandhi Hospital from Saturday morning and he may have to take further treatment for the decease, according to Dr. Shashidhara Buggi, Dean of the Hospital. Dr. Buggi says that the actor has improved only by 70 percent and needs to be under treatment for some more days.
Meanwhile Darshan's counsels have an option to move to the sessions court and seek bail and also quash the proceedings against him. The film industry personalities who have been expecting the bail for the actor have been shocked by the verdict.
