The 'Band Of Boys' member and 'Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin' actor Karan Oberoi, who was arrested on May 6 for allegedly raping and blackmailing a woman in suburban Oshiwara, Mumbai, has been sent to 14-day judicial custody by Andheri Court. The woman had complained to police alleging that Karan was in a relationship with her since 2016 and had allegedly raped her on the pretext of marrying her. He also shot some objectionable videos of the woman and demanded money from her while threatening to release the clips, alleged the lady.



Based on the woman's complaint, Oberoi was arrested on Sunday and booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 376 (rape) and 384 (extortion), Oshiwara police station's senior inspector Shailesh Pasalwad had said.

Amid of the allegation of rape and extortion against the television actor Karan Oberoi, one of his best friends Pooja Bedi along with the band members of his music band 'Band Of Boys' came out in his support.




Pooja urged on Tuesday that the law that are exciting to protect the voice of rape victim, should be used in responsible manner by the women.

In response to the question of IANS on inequality exist in the law at the press meet, Pooja said: "Taking the history of our country in consideration and the patriarchal society that we are living in, there is a situation where a rape victim goes to the police station and her complaint does not get registered, which is wrong. So we need laws against rape and such violence; but at the same time, if a severe number of women are misusing the law if they are not respecting the law that are meant to protect them rather taking advantage of it, we need to think about how to protect the right of a man as well!"
 She added: "It is unfortunate to see such a kind man being subjected to something like this, the reputation damage, the family trauma is unacceptable to me. There are a number of cases where women are not using the law, they are misusing the law."
