Bengaluru: After a police constable from Jnanabharathi police station was allegedly assaulted by Kannada actor Darshan fans when he was trying to manage the crowd during the birthday celebrations held outside the actor’s residence, the Bengaluru police said that it will no longer allow Darshan to hold public birthday celebrations on the streets.

“We will ask them to conduct such events at a public ground instead of disturbing the peace in the locality,” B Ramesh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Bengaluru (West) was quoted speaking to Deccan Herald.

Reportedly on Saturday night, Devaraj DR, a 26-year-old police constable was trying to manage the crowd outside Darshan’s residence near Ideal Homes Layout in Rajarajeshwari Nagar. At around 12:30 am on Sunday, as Darshan was set to step out of his house and meet his fans, the constable asked the fans to stand in a queue.

When Darshan stepped out, pandemonium ensued and an unknown person from the crowd allegedly punched the police constable in the nose and eye with a stone in hand.

Devaraj is currently receiving treatment at a nearby private hospital. A complaint in this regard has been registered with the Rajajinagar Police.
