Actor Armaan Kohli arrested for Illegal Possession of Liquor
Bollywood and TV’s controversial actor Armaan Kohli once made headlines for all the wrong reasons when the Excise department arrested him for illegal possession of liquor. Bandra excise department raided the Ex-Bigg Boss contestant’s Mumbai residence, and he was caught for possessing 41 bottles of scotch whiskey, majority of which were purchased overseas. According to law, a person cannot keep more than 12 hard liquor bottles at home for a month.
Apart from the 41 bottles, officials also found 35 empty alcohol bottles at his house, which had been consumed at private parties. After spending a night at the Bandra excise office, the actor was granted bail, with a bond of Rs. 20,000.
This is not the first time the actor has found himself on the wrong side of the law. In June this year, Armaan was arrested for assaulting his former girlfriend Neeru Randhawa, who later took back her case against him. Also, earlier this month another FIR was lodged against him for allegedly verbally and physically abusing a fashion designer.
Kohli made his Bollywood debut in 1992 with Virodhi. He was last seen on-screen in the Salman Khan film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. He was also a participant in Bigg Boss 7.
