For a long time now, Boy of Boys'lead singer Karan Oberoi has been making headlines. For those who are unaware, Karan Oberoi has been accused of rape and extortion by a woman. The case made headlines every other day. Karan who acted in popular show Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi was arrested on May 6 and was kept in judicial custody. His bail plea was apparently pending in the sessions court which is why he moved to High Court. Karan was granted bail after being in police custody for a month. Karan filed a case against the investigating police officer, inspector DP Sonawane, at the Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Andheri.
The woman was arrested after she preplanned an attack on herself which she falsely blamed on Karan. After the ordeal, Karan opened up on his struggle saying how he was blackmailed by his ex-girlfriend. Those not in the know, Karan had filed a complaint against her a couple of months before she got him arrested. He had accused her of witchcraft. And now to add to that claim, Karan's sister has filed a complaint with the police about the same. Apart from witchcraft, she has also acccused her causing mental trauma and pain to her parents. She has questioned as to why the police have not yet taken any action against the accused.
Karan's sister opened up about the same to a leading daily. "Her witchcraft practices are not a new development. My brother had mentioned it in his NC, which he had filed against her in October last year, seven months before she filed the case against him. She had threatened us with dire consequences and claimed that she was using witchcraft to cause my parents pain and suffering. Such women cannot be above the law." She told the daily.
Karan added, "I have suffered for a long time. While I had clearly mentioned her association with witchcraft in my complaint, no action has been taken against her till date. Practising witchcraft is a serious crime in Maharashtra, and one can’t get away using the gender card. Every time someone gets away with an unlawful practice, it emboldens the others to follow suit. For the good of society, it’s important to keep crime and punishment gender-neutral. Initiatives like #MenToo are the need of the hour."
Karan's lawyer, Dinesh Tiwari also spoke about the case with the daily, "Propagating and promoting such theories in any form is illegal and that’s the ground of our complaint. Besides publishing a book on witchcraft and voodoo, she has been propagating it on chat groups and also teaching people. In fact, her lawyer, too, admitted that she indulges in such practises and even claimed to be a victim of it. This is good enough evidence and she is liable to be prosecuted and punished." he said.
