Karan Oberoi files criminal complaint against investigating officer, says, “I am trying to get justice for victims like me”
Karan Oberoi was caught in controversy after an FIR was lodged on May 4 at Oshiwara Police station, by a 34-year-old victim. The actor was released on bail a month later.
Karan Oberoi has been making headlines after he was accused of rape and extortion. The Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin actor was arrested on May 5 and released on bail a month later. And now Karan has filed a complaint against the officer investigating his case. On Saturday, Karan filed a case against investigating officer, inspector DP Sonawane, at the Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Andheri.
Karan’s lawyer Dinesh Tiwari told Times of India, “We have filed a criminal complaint against IO Sonawane for submitting a false report against Karan Oberoi in the course of hearing of the remand application. We believe that he deliberately tried to frame Karan in an attempt to favour the complainant and is liable to be prosecuted.” Karan too added his confirmation and stated, “I have filed a complaint against the police officer to highlight biased and defective investigation. He had claimed at the time of filing the report that my laptop and mobile were not seized, but as a matter of fact, it was. A cellphone facilitates two-way communication. So, one can’t just seize mine immediately and wait for more than a month to seize hers. I am trying to get justice and set this case as an example for victims like me.”
Karan Oberoi was caught in controversy after an FIR was lodged on May 4 at Oshiwara Police station, by a 34-year-old victim. The complainant had alleged that the TV actor had raped her in 2017, on the pretext of marriage, filmed the act and then tried to extort money by threatening to make the video viral. On June 7, Karan was released after paying Rs 50,000 bail.
