Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli has been booked under Section 356 of the IPC for allegedly assaulting his live-in partner Neeru Randhawa on June 3.

According to the Santacruz police in Mumbai, the former Bigg Boss contestant has been accused by his partner, Neeru, of physically assaulting her after an argument between the two.

According to a report in HT, the police registered a case on Sunday night after receiving an EPR call from a hospital. The report further claims that the argument was over some monetary issues and Kohli lost his temper.

“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 assaulted her post an argument,” said an officer.

After a case was registered against the actor, a team was formed to investigate into the matter.

“We went to Kohli’s residence where the complainant was assaulted but Kohli was not present there. We are looking for him for further interrogation. No arrest has been made yet,” said the officer.

A case under Section 356 (punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapon or any other means) of the IPC has been registered against the actor.

“He is absconding as we couldn’t find him at his residence. We are searching for him (Kohli),” said Shantanu Pawar, a senior officer from Santacruz police station.

Armaan Kohli acted in films such as Jaani Dushman and Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo. He is also infamous for his Bigg Boss stint, where he was said to be one of the most short tempered and violent contestants of the season.
