Rape case: Morani surrenders, sent to jail till Oct 6

Film maker Karim Morani arrested in Rape case

A 25-year-old girl has filed a case against Morani, accusing him of rape and molestation on promise of marriage.

Founder of Cineyug Productions, Morani has produced many Bollywood films including Shah Rukh Khan's "Ra One" and "Chennai Express".

"The film producer surrendered before the police around the midnight".

Bollywood producer Karim Morani surrendered before the Hayathnagar police here late night on Thursday in connection with a rape case.

The woman alleged that Morani clicked nude photos of her and blackmailed her with them.

On September 5, the Hyderabad high court upheld a lower court's order to cancel Mr Morani's anticipatory bail as he concealed the fact that he had been facing criminal charges in the 2G scam and was in jail for several months. "After completing legal formalities and medical check-up, he was produced before the court the next day", Hayathnagar police inspector Narender Goud told Mirror.

The top court refused to grant any relief to Morani, even as Rohatgi told the court that today (Sept. 22) was the last day for the film producer to surrender.

Morani is accused of raping the girl multiple times on the promise of marriage. Karim Morani is part of the high profile Morani brothers, who started out as decorators at Bollywood events in the 1980s, and went on to become popular event managers and ultimately, producers.

The victim told the media, "I didn't know what was happening nor did I know how to react".

After the complaint was filed, Morani was booked under IPC Section 376 for rape, Section 417 for cheating, Section 342 for wrongful confinement and Section 506 for criminal intimidation. But now after going through so much, I felt the need to fight.
