The police had recovered her clothes and footwear with which she reportedly assaulted Renukaswamy at the Pattanagere shed in RR Nagar on June 8. 

Four accused persons in the Renukaswamy murder case were shifted to Tumakuru prison on Wednesday. V Karthik alias Kappe, 27, R Keshavmurthy,  27, L Nikhil Nayak, 21, and Ravi Shankar alias Ravi, 32, were shifted to Tumakuru prison.

The gun licenses of actor Darshan and S Pradosh, 40, might get cancelled in view of their arrest. “If any accused possesses a gun license, it will be cancelled. The jurisdictional DCP will write to the DCP (Administration). This is a normal procedure. Since the accused have been arrested in the murder case, their gun licenses will be cancelled,” said the police.

It is said that Darshan has two US-made pistols and Pradosh has a pistol. It is said that both were exempted from depositing their arms during the recent elections in the state.
