'Karan Oberoi's rape charges are wrong'

A press conference used to be held in enhance of TV actor Karan Oberoi, who used to be arrested on Sunday on charges of rape and extortion levelled against him by a fashion designer-and-healer. Addressing the media used to be his sister Gurbani Oberoi, highest pal Pooja Bedi, and the contributors of A Band Of Boys — the Indipop band that Karan is part of, which incorporates actor Sudhanshu Pandey, Sherrin Verghese, Chaitanya Bhosle and Siddharth Haldipur, among others.

Sudhanshu said, “I have known Karan since two decades. We have observed each and every different’s americaand downs each on the skilled and private entrance. Karan’s father is a embellished retired Army officer and a warfare hero. Karan comes from a just right family and had a cast upbringing. He used to be within the service provider navy before he became an actor. He has all the time led a disciplined existence and has no vices. Since we understand how he is, we will be able to’t consider the type of allegations which have been levelled against him. He is one of the maximum chivalrous guys I have ever come throughout. Forget the allegations, I have by no means observed him lift his voice while talking to a woman or behave rudely with her. So, it is a utterly fantastic state of affairs that we are in right now. That’s the reason why we have now come together and stand united. We need to tell those who what’s taking place to him is fallacious.”

Actress and columnist Pooja Bedi said, “People who know Karan, will vouch that he's a radical gentleman. The allegations pressed on him are extremely critical. Based on what’s out in public area, this girl had met Karan during the top of 2016 on a courting app. This incident it seems that occurred in 2017; there used to be no signal or news of it, then. In October 2018, Karan filed an NC against her for harassment. However, in an interview given by her in 2018, she mentioned that she and Karan had been in a relationship and he or she showered him with gifts, besides different issues. In 2019, she filed a case against him and that, too, she selected a date when the courts close for the holidays to speak about an alleged incident that took place in January 2017. Her statements within the interview in 2018 are utterly contrary to the FIR filed in 2019, stating an incident that took place in 2017. She didn’t mention those incidents in her interview given in 2018, which is totally polar in tonality and language. Though we have now submitted the proof touching on the dialog, which is all recorded, the police had no choice but to behave on her FIR, because she filed it and is a girl. No matter how innocent Karan is also, and the entire proof is there to enhance it, the cops should apply due technique of regulation. It’s so unlucky to see a man, who's maximum respectable, kind, wonderful and a gentleman, being subjected to one thing like this — the condition he is in currently, injury to his reputation and profession, and the trauma that his family is going thru. What’s unacceptable to me is that women can file no matter cases they need to against a man and their names are stored secret, but you can tarnish the picture of a man utterly. It’s no longer true only for Karan, but for plenty of men across the nation. There is a rise within the selection of cases the place girls are misusing the regulation. They misuse those regulations both to extort, personal vendetta, and for more than a few different causes. I believe that is one thing we wish to take stock of as other people and a society. Today, a Karan Oberoi, who is famous, has been branded as a rapist. Tomorrow, if he is acquitted, it is going to be carried as a small news item. But other people will still remember the rapist tag. She has brought about irreparable injury to this guy. If it's proved that it’s a faux case, which I am certain it is going to, I need to see action taken against her and in reality, against every woman who has filed a faux case against a man and has brought about irreparable injury to his profession, title, dignity, integrity and his family.”

Pooja added, “I have fought my whole existence for girls’s rights, and I began combating for men’s rights from remaining yr. I consider in equality, but a girl can’t break out with ruining a man’s existence. There should be repercussions and stringent punishment against girls who file pretend cases, because simplest then they are going to discover ways to no longer frame someone. And because of those handful of women, other people forged aspersions on those that are genuine. Rape is a heinous crime and provisions of regulation were made to protect girls. But if the greater selection of girls are going to misuse this stringent regulation that significantly punishes men and their households, then certain regulations no longer simply wish to be amended, but also be made professional men. After what has took place with Karan, we have now initiated the ‘MenToo’ motion.”

Pooja additionally mentioned that she hasn't ever heard in regards to the girl. She said, “I have known Karan for 15 years, and he is my highest pal. We have observed each and every different thru all our relationships, but I have by no means heard of this girl. No one, together with his sister, has heard of her. The simplest time we heard of her used to be when Karan informed us that a woman used to be harassing, stalking, intimidating and dangerous him. She claims to have some powers! He filed an NC against her in 2018 or even prompt the guards that this woman shouldn’t be allowed any place near the construction. She would still come, stay items on the table and would threaten to burn them if he didn’t accumulate them. The security and his team of workers are witness to a large number of such incidents. Unfortunately, there are not any restraining orders in this nation. He took no matter measures he could, together with informing the police, educating the protection and his team of workers, to stay himself safe. But it’s extraordinary when someone decides to file a case with such heinous charges against someone relating back to 2017, while in 2018, she used to be behaving utterly different with him.”

Karan’s pal and member of A Band Of Boys, Sherrin believes that the filing of the FIR, which led to Karan’s arrest, has been very well-timed by the lady. “This issues out how the regulation has been misused and the individual is deriving a certain roughly sadistic pleasure by doing it. You can’t power someone to love you and it is a clear case of one-sided love. The guy will undergo hell simply because somebody has misused the regulation.”

Pooja added, “While on one hand, she claims that Karan drugged and raped her, on the different, she says that he promised to marry her on the pretext of sex. She needs to make up her thoughts on whether or not he raped her or used to be she after him to marry her? There is a contradiction in her statements.”

It used to be additionally mentioned that the lady would send textual content messages to Karan from a new quantity every time the actor blocked her. One such message which used to be despatched by the lady to Karan on January 13, 2017, used to be read out by Pooja, and the message used to be, ‘Karan, I am being open and upfront. Can we have now sex without thinking about long run, emotions or anything only for now as my body needs it and I won’t be relaxed indulging with someone else. So let me know what you think about it’. His respond to her used to be, ‘I am not within the frame of mind for it right now. I am means too preoccupied with my profession’. It’s clear that she is propositioning him for sex, then how does that turn into rape?”

Karan’s lawyer plans to use for bail on May nine.
