Armaan Kohli was arrested from the Bigg Boss house on Monday night, following an FIR filed by co-contestant Sofia Hayat. Sofia alleged that Armaan had “physically abused and manhandled” her recently during a task. Lonavala cops picked up Armaan, known for his volatile behaviour on the show, late on Monday. He spent the night in police custody and was produced in court on Tuesday afternoon.
“We have been fully cooperating with the police and have shown them whatever tapes of the show they wanted,” said a Colors spokesperson.
Sofia, who filed an FIR against Armaan immediately after she was evicted from the Colors show recently, found a lot of supporters on Twitter. “So Proud of u Sofiya! At least some one showed the courage to stand up to a bully! India needs more women like u. Thank u!” read a tweet.
With less than two weeks to go for the grand finale, it’s uncertain whether Armaan will be able to return to Bigg Boss.
