‘Chennai Express’ producer Karim Morani surrenders to police in rape case

In a shocking turn of events, Bollywood producer Karim Morani has surrendered to police. The producer had been charged with a rape of a Delhi-based woman. He surrendered at the Hayathnagar police station on the city’s outskirts around midnight as confirmed by the police authorities.

Reports suggest that the producer will be brought before a court later in the day.

As per the reports, the girl was a 25-year-old aspiring actor who alleged that the producer repeatedly raped her, promising to marry her. Later, he even threatened to post her private pictures on social media. The police had booked him in the month of January this year on charges of rape, wrongful confinement, criminal intimidation and cheating.

On Friday, the honourable Supreme Court refused to interfere with the Andhra Pradesh High Court order rejecting his plea for anticipatory bail. Earlier, Morani was granted anticipatory bail by the trial court but the same was cancelled later in the month of March when victim said that he was threatening and blackmailing her.

The High Court on September 5 upheld the decision of the sessions court cancelling Morani’s bail.

Talking about movies, Karim Morani has been associated as a producer and co-producer with many films like ‘Chennai Express‘ and ‘Dilwale’ which starred superstar Shah Rukh Khan playing the lead role.
