Tuesday morning came as a shock for Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai fans when they came to know about actor Karan Mehra's arrest. For those unversed, he was arrested by Mumbai Police on Monday night after he allegedly had a fight with his actor wife Nisha Rawal. A case was registered against Mehra at Goregaon Police Station in Mumbai. He was later released on bail from the police station in the early hours of Tuesday. This incident caught the attention of not just the fans of the couple but also the actor's co-star Rohan Mehra who played the role of his on-screen son. In an interview, Rohan said that he is extremely shocked as he has never seen Karan losing his temper or raising his voice on somebody.
Talking to IANS about Karan's arrest, Rohan said, "He was head over heels in love with his wife. They both are very close to me. We have travelled together, too. That was long back. We have spoken on Instagram. I never thought that there is a problem. But no one can say if there is a problem between husband and wife."
Rohan says Karan was not a violent person. "He was not like this. On Bigg Boss, too, he never raised his voice. He never hurt anyone. It's very strange. One can't say what is going on in someone's personal life. But he has never done anything like this. Otherwise he is a gem of a person," says Rohan.
Coming back to the unfortunate incident, the Goregaon police received a call from their control room about the incident around 11 pm on Monday. The police went to the actor's house and brought him to the police station. His wife Nisha Rawal, who is also a TV actor, lodged a police complaint against him after they had a fight, the official said.
A case was registered against Mehra under IPC sections 336 (endangering human life or personal safety others), 337 (causing hurt by an act which endangers human life), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation), he said.
