Popular television actor, 38-year-old Karan Mehra is known for his lead role on the show ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’, was recently arrested from his Mumbai home over the complaint of allegedly beating his wife Nisha Rawal, who is also a TV actor and model.
As per a report in NDTV, he was accused of thrashing his wife after a fight last night. After Nisha lodged a complaint, the Goregaon Police filed a case against him under (IPC) Indian Penal Code sections 336 (endangering human life or the 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 was further asked to record a statement.
Shortly after, he was granted bail and went on to publicly reveal what happened ahead of his arrest, HT reports.
He said, “We were going through a strain in our married life and were trying to figure a way out. In the last few days, we came to a point where were decided to mutually separate and do our best for our child. On May 31, we were talking about finance and how we would distribute things and we disagreed on certain points. She wanted more than what I could give. I told her, ‘What you want, I can’t give and what you want, can’t be given’. I explained to her that the pandemic is still here, and who knows what happens tomorrow and I would want to give my son the best.”
Karan adds that Nisha and her brother Rohit Sethia stepped out after the heated discussion and returned later at night saying that they would go to court and fight if he didn’t agree.
He continued, “They can’t hold me ransom, so I told them to go ahead. Later, Nisha barged into my bedroom, as we have been sleeping in separate bedrooms since a while. She began shouting and abusing my family, told me, ‘I will ruin your life, spat on me and I calmly told her not to behave in this manner and to go back to her bedroom. I didn’t want to talk right then. I got up to go into the bathroom when she suddenly banged her head on the wall and said, ‘ab dekho kya hota’. Actually, Nisha has mood swings and violent anger streak. She would throw stuff and hit herself and others. Five-six years ago, she was diagnosed as bipolar. People, including our friends and relatives have seen her behaviour in public and I couldn’t take it anymore.”

Karan further claimed that he is ‘heartbroken’ that things have reached this stage. He added, “I have been disrespected and now to use the bechari girl card is unbelievable. People know me in the industry and know what I have put into this marriage and done things for her. Today, I am not in a position to give what she wants and this is what I get? Jab lavish life thi, tum enjoy karte the, aaj bura time hai, we have to cope, toh you want to separate. I agreed to separation but to take everything, is not done. Karan ko sadak pe lao aur hume saare paise mile, yeh plan hai. If I give her all what I earn, what will I survive on.”
Karan alleged that Nisha and her brother switched off the cameras inside the house before she banged her head. “There was no proof of what she did. And they suddenly took out their phone cameras to record what happened. It felt like a plot against. They called the cops and so did I and even the cops understood what the truth was. I am not a violent person and I told Nisha to swear on our son that I did that but she didn’t,” he concluded. He is currently at a friend’s house and will go back to his place to pick his belongings.
Nisha is yet to comment on the matter. The couple has been married for 9 years, have known each other for 14 years, and have a son together.
