Renuka Swamy case: Pavithra Gowda did nothing wrong, says ex-husband

Sandalwood actor Darshan, his girlfriend Pavithra Gowda, and 12 others have been arrested in the Renuka Swamy murder case, with a search ongoing for three additional suspects.

The case revolves around Renuka Swamy, a native of Chitradurga and a purported fan of Darshan. Allegedly, Swamy was abducted and tortured to death in a shed in Bangalore because he sent obscene messages to Pavithra Gowda, Darshan’s girlfriend. After the murder, his body was disposed of in a drain.

Sanjay Singh, Pavithra Gowda’s ex-husband, has spoken to the media for the first time regarding the case. He defended Pavithra, asserting her innocence.

“If I am hurt, I go and talk to my wife about it. Similarly, Pavithra was hurt, and she expressed this to her husband, Darshan. As a superstar, Darshan shouldn’t have made a hasty decision. He shouldn’t have taken a wrong step. If he had taken the right path, none of this would have happened,” said Sanjay Singh.

Referring to Pavithra being labeled as Accused No. 1, Singh stated, “The fault began with the deceased Renuka Swamy. He was married and sent obscene messages to Pavithra. Would anyone stay quiet if their wife was treated this way? In my view, Pavithra did nothing wrong. She was hurt and confided in her husband, that’s all.”

Sanjay Singh, originally from Uttar Pradesh, moved to Bangalore in 2002, where he met and fell in love with Pavithra Gowda. The couple later married and had a daughter but eventually grew apart.

The police are continuing their investigation and have brought many details to light as they delve deeper into the case.
