As stated by the police, Oberoi allegedly blackmailed and raped a woman under the pretext that he tied the knot with her. According to the FIR, "Oberoi not only raped the woman and filmed the act but also demanded money from the victim threatening to release the video if she did not pay up”.

Since Karan was arrested, his friends from Bollywood industry have shown their support for him. Especially, they even started the #MenToo movement to help and encourage him as the actor has been suffering from false crime accusation involving sexual violence. Now, Karan Oberoi has granted judicial custody and Dinesh Tiwari, his lawyer revealed that on Friday, they'd apply for a court bail.

In talking with ETimes, Tiwari shared that the fake case like this has happened unexpectedly and suddenly. More than that, such false allegations are made when one doesn’t maintain a harmonious relationship with the other.
