Rape Accused TV actor Karan Oberoi May Get Bail
Karan Oberoi has presented proof to the court that may prove his innocence in the sexual assault case filed by a woman
The television industry was shocked when well-known actor Karan Oberoi was arrested on charges of sexual assault by his ex-girlfriend. However, soon after his arrest, a number of friends and associates rallied around him and vouched for his innocence. In fact, the buzz around town is that the actor may not have committed any crime and the controversy may have been a result of a relationship gone wrong.
The good news for the actor is that he might be granted bail tomorrow. Sources said that his legal team has assured his friends that there is high chance of him getting bail after he submitted proof that the relationship was not one-sided. Karan Oberoi submitted his phone call record, text messages and WhatsApp chat records to the court to prove that he was being pestered for a relationship by the woman.
The scandal started when Karan Oberoi was arrested on Sunday after the woman, who was in a relationship with him since 2016, complained to the Oshiwara Police that he allegedly raped her under the pretext of marrying her. The woman also alleged that he shot some objectionable videos of her and demanded money from her while threatening to release the clips.
Following the woman’s complaint, Oberoi was booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 376 (rape) and 384 (extortion). But Karan found staunch support in some of his friends, especially actress Pooja Bedi who released a video vouching for his character.
Karan has acted in some popular television shows like Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin and Inside Edge, and appeared in various advertisements of cars, bikes and apparel. He was also a member of an Indipop musical group ‘A Band of Boys’ in the early 2000s. It remains to be seen if this controversy will affect his career in any way.
