Karan Oberoi has been in the news for a while. From being accused of rape to being behind bars, lots has happened in these months and now the woman who accused him of rape has got arrested for staging a fake attack. Oops!!
The 34-year-old woman who filed a case against Karan has now been arrested by Mumbai police for filing a fake attack on herself. The victim had earlier said that she was attacked by two people who left with a note asking her to take back the case. After the investigation, the cops have found out that the victim had actually planned the whole attack on herself so that Karan Oberoi got negative publicity. This was all done to defame the actor.
The woman arrested by the police will be soon produced in the court for further investigations.
Karan was arrested on May 06, 2019, after the woman, an astrologer, registered a complaint with the police accusing him of rape and blackmail on the pretext of marriage.
An FIR was registered at the Oshiwara Police Station in Mumbai under sections 376 (rape) and 384 (extortion) of the Indian Penal Code against Oberoi.
"Karan not only raped the woman and filmed the act but also demanded money from the victim threatening to release the video if she did not pay up," the police has stated, quoting the FIR.
A non-cognisable complaint (NC) was lodged by the woman against Karan in October 2018, where she accused him of using her financially. Incidentally, Karan, too, had filed an NC against her for mental harassment 10 days before that.
At that point, the girl had reached the media and had lashed out at Karan, revealing details about their association.
As an actor, Karan started his journey with Mahesh Bhatt's Swabhimaan (Doordarshan - 1995), where he played Bobby and went on to star in shows like Saaya (Sony Entertainment Television - 1998) and Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi (Sony Entertainment Television - 2003). He was also a member of A Band of Boys, which was formed in 2001, whose other members include Sudhanshu Pandey, Sherrin Varghese, Siddharth Haldipur and Chaitnya Bhosale.
Karan Oberoi got support from his friends who stated that rape law was being misused by the woman to get the actor arrested.
All we can say is that Truth Always Prevails!!
