Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli’s girlfriend and live-in partner Neeru Randhawa accused the former of brutally beating her up. Randhawa, who’s a fashion stylist, filed a case against Kohli at Mumbai’s Santacruz police station for alleged physical assault.
As per reports, the couple fought over a financial issue on Sunday and that’s when Kohli, in a fit of rage, pushed Randhawa down the stairs. She even accused Kohli, who’s known for his bad temper, of grabbing her hair and hitting her head against the floor.
As per Spotboye, Randhawa told BT, “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!”
Neeru claimed that this wasn’t the first time Kohli had assaulted her. As per Spotboye, she, “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.”
Randhawa, who’s currently hospitalised in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital, has been suffering from head injuries. Mumbai police has registered a case against Kohli under sections 323, 326, 504 and 506 of the IPC and in look out for Kohli.
Kohli and Randhawa have been in a live-in relationship since 2015 after they met through a mutual friend and started dating. Best known for his infamous stint as a short tempered and abusive contestant in Salman Khan’s TV show Bigg Boss, Kohli had also dated actress Tanisha Mukerji during the same show. However, they broke up due to temperamental differences.
