The Band Of Boys performance in Goa on 7th December, Sunday, 2003 was sabotaged by a lathi charge by the police because the crowd of 8000 people was uncontrollable. The crowd put fire on the stage. None of the band's members are to be blamed for this; it was entirely the event managers' bad organization.

Glamsham.com spoke to Karan Oberoi of Band of Boys on the entire issue. "We are rocking that night - it was us performing on that day. While we were performing, cops came and asked the organizer to stop the show. So, went backstage and the organizers announced that the boys will be back in 10 minutes. The crowd waited for more than 1 and half-hour but since we did not perform again they got wild. The crowd put fire on the stage and damaged few tents. I think the organizers had not taken proper permissions for the show," says Karan.

Karan will now be seen in two movies the first with all the boys and the 2nd movie will be directed by Amit Saxena who directed Jism.
