Karan Oberoi Moves High Court After His Bail Plea Is Rejected
Television actor Karan Oberoi was arrested as he was accused of rape and blackmail earlier this month. He has now approached the Bombay High Court for bail plea. He had also appealed for the same to the Mumbai Sessions Court earlier but it was rejected by the lower court as the investigation into the case was still incomplete and it would be incorrect to release the accused.

The petition was filed on Monday to the High Court through advocate Dinesh Tiwari. Through the petition, Karan Oberoi claims that he was falsely implicated in the case, and that it was a consensual relationship between him and the woman.

Karan Oberoi  was arrested on May 6, and was sent to 14 days of judicial custody by an Andheri court on May 9 after a complaint was registered with Oshiwara police alleging that he had raped a woman who was in a relationship with him since 2016, on the pretext of marriage. Based on the woman’s complaint, Oberoi was arrested on and booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 376 (rape) and 384 (extortion), Oshiwara police station’s senior inspector Shailesh Pasalwad said. Last, when we had spoken to his sister Bani, she had revealed to us that it was a difficult moment for her, to see him in prison and doesn’t want their parents to fly down to Mumbai from Chandigarh. Then, many of his friends including Pooja Bedi, Sonali Singh, Samir Soni stood up in his support. Meanwhile, Karan was last seen in the web series, Inside Edge with Vivek Oberoi.

His hearing would probably be held next week in the High Court.
