Mumbai Police on Tuesday arrested actor Armaan Kohli for alleged assault on his live-in partner Neeru Randhawa.
This was after a case was registered at Santacruz Police Station against Kohli for allegedly hitting his girlfriend and live-in partner Neeru Randhawa, who is a known fashion stylist.
Some media reports had suggested that the couple had a fight over financial issues on last Sunday and Kohli, in a fit of anger, pushed Randhawa down a flight of stairs. Randhawa had alleged that Kohli grabbed her hair and hit her head against the floor.
Randhawa, who accused the actor of assault, had reportedly suffered head injuries leading to her hospitalisation in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital.
“I manage Armaan’s villa in Goa, which is often rented out, and had made a booking for a client. However, the client had made the payment to the villa staff and when Armaan asked me about the money, I told him that I will ask the staff to transfer it. Suddenly, he started verbally abusing me. Before I realised what was happening, he caught me by my hair and banged my head against the floor. I begged him to allow me to go to the hospital, promising that I wouldn’t approach the police. The wound was so deep that I had to undergo a surgery. The doctor told me that the scar would be visible even after the surgery, as the assault has damaged my skin tissues,” a Bombay Times report had quoted Neeru as saying.
The police had registered a case against Armaan Kohli under section 323, 326, 504, 506 of IPC. The actor was absconding and a team was assigned to hunt him down.
Armaan and his girlfriend were said to be in a live-in relationship since 2015. They met through a common friend and soon started dating.
Armaan was earlier dating Kajol’s younger sister Tanishaa Mukerji with whom he fell in love during their tenure in Bigg Boss house. The two, however, parted ways due to alleged differences in temperament and personality.
