A lot of drama has unfolded in the Armaan Kohli’s case in the last 24 hours. Yesterday, Mumbai Police, after much effort, got hold of the former ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant after he came out of his hideout to buy a SIM card. And just hours after his arrest, girlfriend Neeru Randhawa withdrew the assault case that she had earlier filed.
Neeru Randhawa has withdrawn the assault case against the actor hours after his dramatic arrest. When Armaan was produced in the Bandra court, his lawyer Lakshmi Raman informed the magistrate Pragati Yerlekar that the case has been settled between the two. Neeru was also present during the hearing. Armaan’s lawyer further said that “no purpose will be served with his custody.”
Though his bail application was rejected by the magistrate in Bombay High Court an FIR cannot be withdrawn without a court’s sanction. Armaan was then taken away to jail for judicial custody till June 26. His lawyer is now planning to move the bail application before Mumbai’s session court.
Armaan’s live-in partner and a fashion stylist, Neeru Randhawa had filed a complaint against him on June 4 for allegedly physically assaulting at the Santacruz police station. The couple reportedly had a fight over financial issues the previous day and enraged Kohli pushed Neeru down a flight of stairs.
On a related note, he has featured in films like Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani, Virodhi, Dushman Zamana and many more. In 2013, he participated in Bigg Boss and was also rumoured to be dating Kajol’s sister Tanishaa Mukerji.
