The Bombay high court has quashed the FIR registered against actor Armaan Kohli on June 16 for assaulting girlfriend Neeru Randhawa.
The decision came after the victim, Randhawa, a 36-year old model, consented to the quashing of the FIR and decided not to take the case forward.
According to a report in TOI, Kohli submitted an affidavit, which states “remorse and regret” for assaulting his girlfriend. He also gave an undertkaing to the court that he will not repeat such behaviour in future.
Randhawa was also present in the court and filed an affidavit stating that she and Kohli had decided to settle the matter following intervention from mutual friends and Kohli’s family.
The reports further state that the victim has been given some monetary compensation by Kohli’s family and will also be receiving more post-dated cheques from them. If the conditions of the settlement are met then Randhawa is happy to take back the case.
As far as Kohli is concerned, the court has decided that the actor will abide by what is stated in his affidavit in its true spirit and also directed him to donate an amount of Rs one lakh each toTata Memorial Centre’s Children and The National Association of Blind within six months from now.
Kohli was arrested by the police in Santacruz, Mumbai, in early June under section 326 of the IPC for voluntarily causing hurt after his live-in partner, Randhawan, filed a complaint against him.
Kohli is known for his brief appearance in the film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and his controversial stint in Salman Khan’s reality TV show Bigg Boss 7.
