Karan Oberoi Rape Case: Actor Files For Bail, Will Submit Astrologer's Seductive Text Messages As Proof Of Consent
TV actor Karan Oberoi, who has been alleged of rape by an astrologer has filed for bail on Friday. A TOI report states, that “In his plea, he has termed the FIR against him as “false”, an action “meant to harass”, and called his relationship with his 34-year-old accuser “consensual”.”

In his bail plea, Karan states, “The very fact that the applicant (Oberoi) and the first informant (the woman) had met through a dating app goes on to show that the intention of either party was not to get into a serious relationship,” and also that it was she who “since inception” did “try to seduce” him by sending photographs. Attaching copies of the exchanges—submitted earlier to the police—to the plea, Oberoi said in it that they show he never “forced or manipulated” her.

Oberoi also said that he has worked in TV and films for two decades now. He is “honest and trustful (sic)” and “has been known for his kindness”, with no criminal past, in the industry. The TOI report further states, “Among the reasons he deserves bail, according to the plea, is that his father was with the Army and his family has deep roots in society and as such he is not a “flight risk”. The allegations against him “inspire no confidence” and the communication exchanged between him and the woman astrologer “exposes (her) vengeful attitude”. He said his arrest on May 5 by Oshiwara police and their plea for continued custody even on May 9 (Thursday) was with the “oblique purpose to harass” him.”

This comes a day after he was sent to judicial custody on charges of raping and blackmailing a woman. A Magistrate Court sent Karan to 14 days' custody on Thursday following his arrest on May 5.

Oberoi’s lawyer Dinesh Tiwari told IANS, that Karan’s hearing, "may come up next week due to court vacation.” “That the case against my client is false is demonstrated from the messages exchanged between the parties,” he added.
