New Delhi: An FIR has been lodged against actor Armaan Kohli for assaulting his girlfriend Neeru Randhawa. The former Bigg Boss star had allegedly grabbed her hair and banged her head against the floor. The Santacruz police are looking for Kohli to arrest him.
The victim, who accused the actor of assault, has been hospitalised in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital. According to police, the 46-year-old has been accused by his live-in partner and model, of beating her up after an argument broke out between them.
“We have registered a case after the woman gave us a statement on Sunday night. There was an argument between the two over some monetary issue after which the complainant claims the actor assaulted her,” said an officer to India TV.
Police on Sunday night received an EPR call from a hospital. After police reached the hospital, they saw Neeru receiving treatment for her injuries. “She had also received head injuries for which she had gone to the hospital. We recorded her statement after which it was clear that Kohli had allegedly assaulted her post an argument,” said another officer.
A case has been registered under sections 323, 326, 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code. Armaan and his girlfriend were said to be in a live-in relationship since 2015.
Neeru shared the horrifying incident with India TV, “The argument started on a frivolous matter. I manage Armaan’s villa in Goa, which is often rented out, and had made a booking for a client. However, the client had made the payment to the villa staff and when Armaan asked me about the money, I told him that I will ask the staff to transfer it. Suddenly, he started verbally abusing me. Before I realised what was happening, he caught me by my hair and banged my head against the floor. I begged him to allow me to go to the hospital, promising that I wouldn’t approach the police. The wound was so deep that I had to undergo a surgery. The doctor told me that the scar would be visible even after the surgery, as the assault has damaged my skin tissues. Armaan has been sending me text messages since Sunday, asking me to come back home, and he is even promising to marry me right away, but I have had enough!”
“This is not the first time he has physically abused me,” she added.
Armaan is infamous for his temper, and he is a repeat offender as in the past when he has assaulted his former girlfriend as well.
