Mumbai: In an interesting twist to Karan Oberoi rape case, the 34-year-old woman who filed a case against the actor has now been arrested by Mumbai police for staging 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 get 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.
On 25 May, Oshiwara police had filed an FIR where the victim had alleged that when she was on morning walk she was attacked by two bike-borne accused.
The victim in her complaint said that she is a patient of depression and therefore her doctor suggested her to go for morning walks.
She further added the accused threatened her to attack with acid and also threw a note asking her to take back the case.
During initial investigations, cops arrested two accused from Mira Road, who were distant relatives of victim’s lawyer Ali Kashif Khan.
The cops suspected victim’s lawyer to be involved in the case. Khan was called to the police station by the cops who after detailed interrogations confessed to his crime. He told cops that he planned the staged attack on the victim during her morning walk.
After further interrogation, cops found out that the victim was also involved in the staged attack. She knew everything about it and it was well planned.
The Oshiwara police are already investigating the case filed by the victim against Karan. The victim has alleged that Kara Oberoi raped her on the pretext of marriage and blackmailed her for more money with a video clip.
However, Karan got support from his friends who stated that rape law was being misused by the woman to get Oberoi arrested. The singer-actor who was arrested on 5 May, was granted bail by Bombay High Court on 7 June.
