'Bigg Boss 7' contestant Armaan Kohli granted bail in alleged assault case
Armaan was picked up from the Bigg Boss house by Lonavala police in connection with the complaint registered against him by Sofia Hayat.

New Delhi: Armaan Kohli, one of the participants in the reality show Bigg Boss Season 7, was granted bail by a Mumbai court today following his arrest last night for alleged physical abuse of a co-contestant on the show.

Armaan Kohli, who has been picking fights with everyone in the house, was arrested by Lonavala Police following a complaint by actor Sofia Hayat alleging she was manhandled by Mr Kohli on the show.

Mr Kohli was booked under sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of peace), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to outrage the modesty of a woman), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 354 a (sexual harassment) of the Indian Penal Code.

Mr Kohli allegedly hit the 29-year-old actor on the face with a mop she was using to wipe the windscreen of a car during a task on the show. The British-Pakistani actress and model claims that Bigg Boss didn't air the footage of Mr Kohli hitting her since children also watched the show.

"A 6 feet two inches man hit me on my face with a stick. I thought he will be evicted but he was not. He is a very violent and aggressive person. He should not be given a second chance to hit any other woman. I don't want to teach him a lesson. I just want to do what is right," she had said in a statement.

"I want Armaan to go to jail for at least a month. He should be punished. The world needs to know that India will not tolerate this behaviour, India stands behind its women," she had said.

Ms Hayat was eliminated from the show earlier this month.
