The actor was arrested on Monday, from the sets of Bigg Boss 7 following a complaint filed by British singer-actor Sofia Hayat for allegedly assaulting her during their stay in the reality show, a police official said
“Armaan Kohli is in the police station and the investigation is going on. He was taken under custody at around 11 pm (Monday). The investigation is on and things will be clear after that ,” said an official from the Lonavala police station. A source from channel Colors, which airs the popular show, confirmed that Armaan was arrested on Monday night.
Sofia filed her complaint at the Santacruz police station on December 11, just days after her eviction from the TV show. During her stay on the show, an argument broke out between Armaan and her which led to him hitting her with a mop, leaving her bruised.
Armaan, who has worked in films like Virodhi, Aulad Ke Dushman and Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani, has been in the spotlight on Bigg Boss 7 several times due to his temper.
The show, hosted by Bollywood star Salman Khan, features celebrities from different walks of life who are made to live together in a secluded house with over 80 well-placed cameras which pry on their activities 24X7.
