Karan’s lawyer, Dinesh Tiwari said, “It’s Frustrating, as we were expecting to secure bail in the case. However, the complainant’s lawyer wanted to be heard in the matter. I told the honourable court that it’s a tactic to delay the hearing and it seems like it is a personal vendetta.
He further said that, “I said that I leave it to the discretion and wisdom of the court, whether it would like to hear them, because whatever they had to say, including what happened before the Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Andheri East, has already been placed on record required for this proceeding.”
