Rape accused actor gets bail

Karan Oberoi after being in jail from a month has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court on Friday. The actor was facing allegations of blackmailing and raping 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.

“We are very happy with the court’s decision. Finally justice has been served in this matter,” Tiwari said. Meanwhile, Justice Mohite-Dere said that WhatsApp communication placed by the victim doesn’t indicate rape charges on the prima facie.

Karan who has been in the industry over 25 years has been part of “Swabhimaan”, “Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin” and “Saaya”. He was also one of the vocalists of ‘A Band of Boys’, an Indipop boy band.
