Armaan Kohli booked for assaulting live-in partner


A case has been registered under sections 323, 326, 504 and 506 against Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli for physically assaulting his live-in partner Neeru Randhawa, a fashion stylist. Hot tempered Armaan hit Neeru’s head against the floor and she was rushed to the hospital. She is currently undergoing treatment at Mumbai Kokilaben hospital.

The Santacruz police on Sunday night registered a case against actor-producer Armaan for allegedly hitting Neeru. According to police, case under section 326 (punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered, the cops informed Hindustan Times.

Neeru also claimed that Armaan assaulted her in the past also, “He had assaulted me in February this year, and nearly broke my nose. This relationship has been a huge mistake, but I continued to give him chances despite being warned by friends and family. In fact, I had called time on the relationship in September last year, and left for Dubai. I got a job and was living there peacefully. However, three months later, Armaan came to take me back home. When I told him that I didn’t want to get back to the vicious circle, he begged and pleaded with me and said that he would change. He told me that he needs me as I have made him a better person and taken care of his parents and brother. I left everything and returned to India with him," she said.

Elaborating what led to the fight, she said, "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,” she added.
