Actor Karan Oberoi’s case where he was accused by a woman for rape and blackmail is taking new turns every day. After Sessions Court rejected Karan’s bail plea, the actor will supposedly re-apply in the High Court. In a shocking turn of events, now Police has arrested four men over attack on Karan Oberoi’s accuser. Reports suggest that one of the four could be a distant relative of the victim’s lawyer Ali Kashif Khan, according to Deputy Commissioner of Police Paramjit Singh Dahiya.
While speaking to Bombay Times, Senior inspector of Oshiwara police Shailesh Pasalwar said, “We are probing whether the lawyer has got any role in the attack.” DCP Singh Dahiya said they had tried calling the lawyer but “his mobile phone was found to have been switched off on Thursday.” The four youths were picked up from different locations at Andheri and Mira Road.
Last Saturday, the woman had gone for a morning walk in Andheri when, between 5.45am and 6am, two unidentified bike-borne men slashed her arm with a paper cutter. They then threw a chit at the spot with the words “Take back the case” scribbled on it.In her police complaint following the attack, the woman had stated, “I am undergoing treatment for depression and my doctor has advised morning walks. On Saturday, I left home at 5.40am and took an auto-rickshaw to Lokhandwala Circle. From there, I walked towards the Millat Nagar back road to reach Yamuna Nagar junction and Joggers Park, where two men on a bike began to follow me. They attacked me and threw a chit with ‘Take back the case’ scribbled on it.” She said the bikers appeared to be aware of her schedule.
Cops scanned at least 100 CCTVs in the region and, based on details of the bike they had gathered, picked up one Jishan Ansari (23). His arrest led to his brother Altamas Ansari (22) and their two aids, Jatin Santosh (22) and Arafat Ahmed Ali.
