Pooja Bedi is very happy today. Finally, her close friend, actor Karan Oberoi, who had been in jail for a month for allegedly raping a healer, has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court (read our earlier story about the same). Pooja, who had stood by him like the Rock Of Gibraltar, took to Twitter to express her feelings.
YAAAAAAAY! FINALLY. @IAmKaranOberoi gets bail from high court Mumbai. After 1month of being imprisoned on a Fake FIR. Thankkkk u all for all the love & support its immeasurable. NOW Time to put the real culprits behind bars. @timesofindia @vineetjaintimes
We then spoke to Pooja via WhatsApp, who said the following,
‘”Soooooooo relieved. Soooooo happpppy. Very emotional. It’s been a VERY long month for all of us. So GRATEFUL for all the love and support from friends. Family. Media& Industry.”
“The bigger picture is to quash the fake FIR next and focus on #mentoo and legislation changes so that NO innocent man should have to suffer what Karan did”
The case has taken a murkier tone with the lawyer of the victim being arrested by the cops for an attack on his client which he claims to have done on the orders of the accuser.
In closing, Pooja informs us that Karan will be released from jail tomorrow morning.
