Mumbai: The Bombay High Court today quashed an FIR against actor Armaan Kohli after he submitted an affidavit from jail expressing “remorse and regret” for assaulting his girlfriend.
The court observed that since the victim, Neeru Randhawa, had consented to the quashing of the FIR and did not desire to take the case forward, it was best to quash the FIR.
In the affidavit that Kohli’s lawyer brought to court in compliance with its previous order, the actor also assured the court that he will not repeat such behaviour.
Randhawa, who was present in 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 receive some other post-dated cheques from them.
“If the conditions of settlement are met then I will be happy to take back the case,” she told the court.
“We hope and trust the petitioner (Kohli) will abide by what is stated in the affidavit in its true spirit,” the bench said.
