India: Bigg Boss 11 contestant Arshi Khan is in the news again. According to a report in IB Times, a Jalandhar court has issued an arrest warrant against Arshi for not attending the proceedings for the past three months.
The warrant was issued on Monday. The court ordered police to enter the Bigg Boss 11 house and arrest Arshi. A case had been filed against her for allegedly trying to create enmity between communities by painting the national flags of India and Pakistan on her body, reports the Hindustan Times.
The controversial diva is skipping the trial for the third time. This is also the second arrest warrant against her.
Arshi’s publicist Flynn Remedios told IB Times that even though the arrest warrant is still valid, he managed to get a stay order. The stay will be valid till January 15, 2018.
Flynn said he got a stay order as Arshi is locked up in Bigg Boss 11 house.
‘An arrest warrant was issued against Arshi Khan on Monday by a Jalandar magistrate’s court. I could not attend the court as I was down with fever and as we all know, Arshi Khan is locked inside the Bigg Boss house. Arshi Khan has been inside the Bigg Boss house since October 1st and this was the third time that the case came up for hearing in the last three months,’ he was quoted as saying.
‘However, on producing proof that Arshi Khan is locked up inside the Bigg Boss house, the court was pleased to stay the execution of the warrant till January 15, 2018. In simple terms, this means that the arrest warrant still exists and is not cancelled, but the police will not take action till January 15. If Arshi Khan attends the court before that, the warrant may be cancelled or else the police will execute the warrant,’ Flynn said.
The report added that Arshi had courted controversy by painting national flags of the two nations on her semi-nude body.
