Armaan back in 'Bigg Boss' house: Colors spokesperson
Actor Armaan Kohli, who was arrested for allegedly assaulting British singer-actress Sofia Hayat in the "Bigg Boss - Saath 7" house, has resumed his stay in the reality show after completing legal formalities Tuesday, said a spokesperson of channel Colors.
"Armaan Kohli had to leave the 'Bigg Boss' house last night to co-operate with the police investigation in a case filed against him. He has duly completed the formalities and has now returned back to the 'Bigg Boss' house," the spokesperson said in a statement.
The show went on air on Colors Sep 15.
Armaan was one of the 14 contestants who entered the show.
The actor, who was seen in movies like "Virodhi", "Aulad Ke Dushman" and "Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani", has been in the spotlight for his bad temper. That is what also embroiled him in the legal matter.
Sofia's complaint was the result of an argument that broke out between the two and Armaan ended up hitting Sofia with a mop, which left her injured.
Armaan was arrested from the "Bigg Boss" house post 11 p.m. Monday night following a complaint lodged by Sofia at the Santa Cruz police station Dec 11.
He was released by police here on bail of Rs.50,000 and two sureties of like amount, his lawyer said here Tuesday.
According to the Lonavala police official, Armaan has been booked under Sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to outrage the modesty of a woman), 354(a) (sexual harassment), 294 (sing, recite or utter any obscene song or word) and 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of peace) of the Indian Penal Code.
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 prying on their activities 24X7.
