Cops arrest woman who accused actor Karan Oberoi of rape

MUMBAI: In a sudden turn of events, the Mumbai Police on Monday arrested a woman who had lodged a false case of rape against television actor-singer Karan Oberoi, an official said.

Oberoi, who was arrested on 6 May 2019 for allegedly raping and blackmailing the woman, was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on 7 June 2019.

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 25 May 2019 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.
