Armaan Kohli, who was arrested on Monday night and released on bail on Tuesday afternoon, is back on the reality show Bigg Boss 7. He was arrested for allegedly assaulting a fellow contestant, Sofia Hayat, on the show.
A statement from Colors channel said, "Armaan Kohli had to leave the Bigg Boss house last night to cooperate 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 arrest came three days after British singer-actress Sofia Hayat filed a complaint against actor Armaan Kohli
for allegedly assaulting her during their stay at a Lonavla-based bungalow while filming the reality show.
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.
Although the Santacruz Police had initially booked Kohli for assault, the Lonavla city police added charges of sexual harassment against the actor. An inspector at Lonavla police station said on Monday, "We obtained the CCTV footage of the bungalow and after scanning it, we could verify Hayat's allegations. Kohli was subsequently arrested
on Monday night."
On Tuesday's episode, the inmates are asked to gather in the living area and informed about the luxury budget weekly task, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
As part of the task, the inmates are supposed to choose one badge with a contestant’s name written on it and hang the badge around their neck during the task. In the garden, six stands are placed with each containing ten bottles labeled with a contestant’s name. If an inmate fails in the task, the person whose name's badge he or she is wearing will be punished.
For each mistake, one bottle from the stand will be opened and emptied, making the contestant lose a point.
The person with maximum bottles will be safe from next week’s nominations.
Sangram monitors the whole task.
