"after so many years of marriage this happened."
TV actor Karan Mehra was arrested on May 31, 2021, in an alleged domestic violence case.
His wife Nisha Rawal accused him of beating her at their home in Goregaon, Mumbai.
It was alleged that Karan lost his temper and attacked his wife in anger. The incident reportedly resulted in Nisha suffering a cut to her head.
She later filed a case at Goregaon Police Station and Karan was subsequently arrested.
DCP Vishal Thakur said:
“We have arrested him on the charges of domestic violence. His wife Nisha Rawal has filed a complaint.”
Karan was produced before a magistrate court before he was released on bail.
The Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor has now given his side to the incident.
Karan Mehra said that he is being framed by Nisha and her brother, Rohit Sethiya. He claimed that he was assaulted by Rohit.
On his troubled marriage with Nisha, Karan said:
“It is sad that after so many years of marriage this happened.
“We have been discussing this for the last one month because things have been a bit strange between us for a long time.
“So, we were thinking that if we should part ways or what should we do. So we were trying to fix things.”
He then said what happened on the night of the alleged domestic violence incident, telling India Today:
“Nisha’s brother, Rohit Sethiya, had also come to improve things.
“Later, Nisha and her brother asked for an alimony amount, which was too high, and I said it was not possible for me.
“Last night also, we spoke about it. He came to me at around 10 pm.
“When I said it won’t be possible for me, he suggested taking the legal way.
“After the conversation, I came to my room. I was talking to my mother over the phone when Nisha barged in and started hurling abuses at me, my parents, and my brother.
“She started shouting loudly and not only that Nisha even spat on me.
“When I asked Nisha to go out, she threatened me by saying ‘see what I do now’ and went out.
“She then smashed her head on the wall, and told everyone that I did it.”
Karan Mehra claimed that after Nisha blamed him for injuring her, Rohit beat him.
“Nisha’s brother came and raised his hand on me.
“He assaulted me… slapped me and hit me on the chest too.
“I told his brother that I had not hit Nisha, and he could check it on the camera of the house, but the cameras were already switched off.
“They started recording all the videos, and then they called the police, but the police also did nothing because they know what the truth is.
“If they file a false case, the truth will come out. If tomorrow an investigation is conducted, the truth will be out.”
He said that the police case came as a shock to him.
“For me, it’s all very surprising. If Nisha asks for any amount, from where will I bring so much money?
“I was doing all this for Kavish, my child. It could have been solved with talks.
“My parents were also trying but Nisha left. I could see that she was trying to get me away from my child.”
