British singer-actress Sofia Hayat says that in her complaint against her Bigg Boss 7 co-inmate Armaan Kohli she hadn't levelled any sexual assault charges.

Armaan, who was voted out of the Bigg Boss 7 house on Saturday, was arrested from the house Dec 17 for allegedly assaulting Sofia, during her stay in the show. After being released on bail, Armaan re-entered the house only to be evicted.

"I filed a complain against Armaan under three sections, but when the police itself saw the footage, they themselves registered the complaint under two more sections," Sofia, who was evicted from "Bigg Boss" Dec 7, told reporters at Hot Yoga Studio launch in Mumbai. "Police added sexual assault to the case... I didn't," she further said.

During her stay, Sofia had an argument with Armaan who allegedly ended up hitting her with a mop. But Sofia wonders why police, who saw the footage, released him so quickly.

"I am not happy with Armaan getting bail so quickly. I don't know why he got free so quickly. My lawyer is looking into it. My point is that if police registered the complaint after seeing the footage and the valid proof, then how did they release Armaan so quickly? I just don't understand it," she added.

The Bigg Boss finale is on December 28 and Gauhar Khan, VJ Andy, Tanisha Mukherjee, Sangram Singh and Ajaz Khan are vying for the big prize.

Asked who did she want to win the reality show, Sofia said: "I want Gauhar (to win the show Bigg Boss). I love her." "She is a good friend of mine. She is very good at heart. I really miss her a lot. I really love her. Please vote for Gauahar. She has to win this show," she added.
