For the first time in the history of Indian television, the police arrested a contestant from the middle of a TV reality show. The show in question is Bigg Boss 7 and the contestant is Armaan Kohli, who was arrested on the basis of a complaint filed by ex-contestant Sofia Hayat. Yesterday, the Lonavla police arrested Armaan on the basis of Sofia's complaint that stated that he allegedly assaulted her with a mop, causing pain and trauma to her.
The complaint also mentioned Armaan verbally abusing her. Even though Sofia's complaint was booked by Santacruz police station, the case was transferred to Lonavla police station as the Bigg Boss' studios is located there. The police have booked Armaan under sections 324, 509, 506 and 504 of the IPC (Indian Penal Code). Readers may note that Armaan has been in the news ever since the show started due to his much talked about love affair with Kajol's sister Tanisha, during the show.
