Bigg Boss 8 contestant, Soni Singh, is reportedly assaulted by her ex-boyfriend who caught her unaware on the streets of Verosa, Mumbai, on Monday (6 July). The actress, the boyfriend and their friends were taken to the police station soon after.
"An eye witness told us that Soni was dragged by this man inside a car. Sounds of slaps and hits could be heard with Soni being at the receiving end. Even when her friends tried to intervene, Soni was heard requesting them to not interfere in their personal matter. However, one person called the cops and all were taken to the Versova police station," Tellychakkar.com reported.
Soni refused to talk about the incident when the website tried to contact the actress. She was quoted saying, "This is a personal matter and I don't want it to be publicized."
The petite actress is popular for her negative roles on many television shows including, Saraswatichandra, Laagi Tujhse Lagan and Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan. The actress was last seen contesting on the controversial reality show, Bigg Boss season 8. She was under scanner on the show for her closeness to her co-contestant, Upen Patel, whom she considered as a brother.
