Mumbai: Actor Armaan Kohli was Monday arrested from the set of “Bigg Boss Saath-7” following a complaint filed by British singer-actress Sofia Hayat for allegedly assaulting her during their stay in the reality show, a police official said.
“Armaan is in the police station and the investigation is going on. He was taken under custody at around 11 p.m. (Monday). The investigation is on and things will be clear after that ,” an official from the Lonavala police station told IANS.
A source from channel Colors, which airs the popular show, too confirmed that Armaan was arrested Monday night.
Sofia filed her complaint at the Santa Cruz police station here Dec 11, just days after her eviction from the TV show. During her stay on the show, an argument had broken out between her and Armaan. Armaan ended up hitting Sofia with a mop and that left her hurt.
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 Saath-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.
