New Delhi, News24 Bureau, July 1: Television actor and singer Karan Oberoi, three weeks after getting released from police custody, has filed a complaint against the investigating officer, inspector DP Sonawane. The actor-singer accused the inspector of submitting a false report.
As per the reports of the Times of India, the inspector acted in a biased manner and was favouring the complainant. Karan Oberoi's lawyer, Dinesh Tiwari filed a case in Mumbai's Metropolitan Magistrate's Court on June 29 and demanded that the inspector should be prosecuted.
Oberoi, who was arrested on May 6 for allegedly raping and blackmailing the woman, was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on June 7.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Shinge confirmed the woman's arrest by the Oshiwara Police for filing a false complaint against Oberoi and orchestrating an assault on herself on May 25.
The woman had claimed that on May 25 two motorcycle-borne men assaulted her and left a note purportedly asking her to "take back" her case against Oberoi, failing which they threatened to splash acid on her.
A couple of days later, the police arrested the duo, one of whom turned out to be a relative of the woman's lawyer. The two men confessed that the attack was pre-planned and they were paid Rs 10,000 for it. Earlier on June 7, the Bombay High Court had granted bail to Karan Oberoi, over a month after he was arrested on alleged charges of raping and blackmailing a woman.
Granting a Rs 50,000 bail to Oberoi, Justice Revati Mohite-Dere came down heavily on the victim and police in the matter, said his lawyer Dinesh Tiwari.
Karan started his acting profession with Mahesh Bhatt's Swabhimaan, where he was seen in the character of Bobby. Karan was later seen in shows like 'Saaya' and 'Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi'. Apart from featuring in TV shows, Karan was also a singer and he was part of a band formed in 2001. Karan was last seen in the Amazon Prime Video web series 'Inside Edge'
