After Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli produced in the court on June 13th, 2018, the Bombay High Court on Friday, June 15th, 2018 have quashed an FIR against him after he submitted an affidavit from jail expressing "remorse and regret" for assaulting his girlfriend.
The court observed that since the victim, Neeru Randhawa, has consented to the quashing of the FIR and did not desire to take the case forward, it was best to quash the FIR.
Ms. Randhawa, who was present in the court, also filed an affidavit stating that she and Kohli had decided to amicably settle the matter following the intervention of Kohli's family and their mutual friends. She also told the court that she has already received some monetary compensation from Kohli's family and that she was to accept some other post-dated cheques from them.
Armaan’s lawyer Lakshmi Raman stated that “The High Court has directed the superintendent of Arthur Road jail to release Armaan as the matter has been quashed and nothing remains pending,” and “It is a full and final settlement between Armaan and Neeru, where he earlier paid an amount of Rs 50 lakh, and today he paid two post-dated cheques of Rs 25,000.”
The High Court judge also demanded an affidavit from Armaan saying he regrets whatever happened and that he will never attempt such an act ever again.
