TV actor Karan Oberoi, who was arrested on May 6 on charges of rape and extortion levelled against him by a woman, suffered a panic attack in the police van.

An eyewitness told TOI, “Karan suffered a panic attack in the police van after he left from the court. He was crawling under the bench gasping for air. He was given a glass of orange juice after which his condition became stable. He is not in a good state and people close to him are worried about his health.”
For the uninitiated, Karan was arrested for allegedly raping and blackmailing a woman on May 5 in suburban Oshiwara. The woman complained to police that Oberoi, who was in a relationship with her since 2016, 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, the official said.
An FIR was registered at Oshiwara Police Station in Mumbai under sections 376 (rape) and 384 (extortion) of the Indian Penal Code against Oberoi.
