MUMBAI: Bigg Boss inmate Armaan Kohli was arrested on Monday night by the police after British-Pakistan model-actress Sofia Hayat filed a complain against him on Thursday for assaulting her in the Bigg Boss house.
He was arrested from the Bigg Boss bungalow in Lonavala.
Confirming the arrest, Vishnu Pawar, inspector at the Lonavala police station said, “We obtained the CCTV footage of the bungalow and upon scanning it, we could verify Hayat’s allegations. Kohli was subsequently arrested on Monday night.”
Pakistani-British model Sofia had accused Armaan of assault after her eviction from the Bigg Boss house last week.
In retaliation, Armaan had also slapped a defamation case against Sofia after she filed the assault case against him.
Police said Armaan has been booked under Sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of peace) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to outrage the modesty of a woman), Section 294 (obscene acts and songs), Section 506 (criminal intimidation) and Section 354 a (sexual harassment) of the Indian Penal Code.
