Sofia Hayat had registered a complaint with Santacruz Police Station, following which the police booked Kohli under Sections 324, 509, 506 and 504 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Sofia accused Armaan of hitting her with a wooden mop, inside the Bigg Boss 7 house in Lonavla on December 4. The complaint was later transferred to the Lonavla police station for investigation. Armaan spent the night at the Lonavala Police Station,

Before arresting Kohli, the Lonavala police had contacted the the reality show organisers, seeking unedited video footage from their set. Inspector Vishnu Pawar of the Lonavala police station is monitoring the investigations.

Armaan’s father, producer Rajkumar Kohli -- who’s right now in Lonavla, is waiting for Armaan to come out on bail -- sounds furious. “I have already submitted the papers to my lawyer and I am going to file a case against Sofia Hayat. I’m definitely going to sue this girl for defamation.”

When asked if Armaan is short tempered otherwise, he says “Not at all, Armaan is a very noble person. He is not like this but in the Bigg Boss 7 House he is being provoked. And if you provoke anyone constantly then the person will get irritated and react. It’s the nature of the person, people shouldn’t irritate him the way she did.”

Commenting on the closeness between Armaan and Tanisha, he said, “I am following the show. But till the time they come out or I meet Armaan and he discusses it with me, I can’t comment on it. He doesn’t have any girl friend outside and he is a very sensitive person. If he’s provoked, he will react.”
