As per the police, the incident took when the couple got into an argument. Armaan pushed Neeru down the stairs, grabbed her by the hair and banged her head on the floor. The police further said that Neeru managed to escape from the apartment and asked her driver to take her to the nearest hospital. After she narrated the incident to the doctors, the hospital staff called the police.
Neeru later revealed that the two had been living-in together since 2015. Though the issue was a trivial one, it was enough for the short-tempered Armaan to start beating Neeru. She also said that this isn’t the first time she was a victim of physical assault.
Despite doing a number of films, Armaan’s claim to fame remains his participation in Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss in 2013. His relationship with fellow contestant Tanisha Mukerji became a talking point on the show.
Armaan was last seen on the silver screen in Salman starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
