Reportedly, the two had a huge fight last night at their residence where he allegedly thrashed Nisha due to which she sustained injured in head and had to get stitches. Later, she filed complaint against Karan.
Confirming the news, DCP Vishal Thakur said, "We have arrested him on the charges of domestic violence. His wife Nisha Rawal has filed the complaint."
Of late, there were rumours rife that the celebrity couple’s marriage had hit a rough patch and there were problems in their married life. However, both of them had denied the reports earlier and termed it as just rumours.
However, a couple of Nisha Rawal's cryptic posts on social media had suggested otherwise. Karan Mehra was also dealing with COVID-19 related issues.
Earlier speaking to Hindustan Times Karan had said, "I was down with COVID and mourning my loved ones who passed away after contracting the virus. In the midst of this I had to exert myself and talk to the media. It was crazy. I was not in the frame of mind but had to set things straight. Nisha has been taking care of me through COVID".
Notably, Karan and Nisha are one of the most loved couples of the television industry. They have been married for more than a decade now and have a 4-year-old son.
Meanwhile, Karan Mehra was granted bail on Tuesday morning after his arrest the night before, following a complaint by his wife, actress Nisha Rawal, over a domestic fight.
Opening up on the incident, Karan's friend and colleague, actor Rohan Mehra, says he never realised there was a problem between the couple.
"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," he told IANS.
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.
The two have worked together in "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai".
