Chennai Express producer Karim Morani has been booked for raping and blackmailing a 25-year-old girl from Delhi. The Hyderabad police have filed a case against him. The victim has claimed that in the past two years, Morani repeatedly raped her and also threatened to circulate her nude pictures, if she went to the police.
Reportedly, following the complaint, a case has been filed under IPC section 417 for cheating, 376 for rape, 342 for wrongful confinement and 506 for criminal intimidation.
However, the producer’s spokesperson had something else to say. He said, “The complaint is absolutely false and bogus with the sole intention of tarnishing Mr. Morani’s reputation and image. Mr. Morani will be taking appropriate steps in accordance with the law to demonstrate that complaint is mala fide. He is truthful and innocent and has full faith in the judiciary and is ready and willing to co-operate with the authorities to the fullest extent.”
Morani was earlier also named in a 2G spectrum scam!
