Karan Oberoi who was imprisoned for over a month after being accused of rape on 5 May. Has reportedly filed a complaint against the investigating officer, inspector DP Sonawane to highlight biased and defective investigation.
According to a Times Now report, Karan filed the case on 29 June in the Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Andheri East, Mumbai.
Speaking to The Times Of India, Karan’s lawyer Dinesh Tiwari said, “We have filed a criminal complaint against IO Sonawane for submitting a false report against Karan Oberoi in the course of hearing of the remand application. We believe that he deliberately tried to frame Karan in an attempt to favour the complainant and is liable to be prosecuted.”
Karan also confirmed the news and said, “I have filed a complaint against the police officer to highlight biased and defective investigation. He had claimed at the time of filing the report that my laptop and mobile were not seized, but as a matter of fact, it was. A cellphone facilitates two-way communication. So, one can’t just seize mine immediately and wait for more than a month to seize hers. I am trying to get justice and set this case as an example for victims like me.”
However, the Investigating Officer denied the claims and said, “I haven’t received any such intimation yet.”
