Actor Armaan Kohli arrested for assaulting girlfriend

June 12, 2018 22:36 IST

Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli was on Tuesday arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, a senior police official said on Tuesday night.

The arrest by Santacruz police came on a complaint filed on June 4 by Kohli's girlfriend, a 35-year-old model, the official said.

Based on her statement, Kohli was booked under Sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

 

The actor was absconding since then, the official said.

According to the complainant, she was in a relationship with 46-year-old Kohli for past three years and they used to stay together in a flat in suburban Santacruz, the official said.

The duo had an argument over some monetary issue at their residence on Sunday evening (of June 3) and during the altercation, he allegedly pushed the woman and she fell from the stairs, according to the complaint.

The accused then pulled her hair and banged her head on the floor, the woman has alleged.

She has added that she suffered head and knee injuries in the incident and was admitted to a hospital by her driver.

Further investigation into the matter is underway, he added.

Kohli has appeared in several films like Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani and made his last big screen appearance in LOC: Kargil in 2003.

He gained popularity after featuring on superstar Salman Khan-hosted reality TV show Bigg Boss Season 7.
