Bigg Boss 11 controversies don’t seem to end.

Arshi Khan, Sapna Chowdhry & Priyank Sharma In An Argument
Following which, now Arshi Khan's publicist has issued a statement and is spreading across various media houses claiming to do an FIR against the channel (Colors) and production house (Endemol), under provisions concerning dignity of women in legally privileged and protected cases.
This is what his statement reads:
To Colors / Endemol:
Dear Sir /Madam,
On behalf of Arshi Khan, whose publicist, legal adviser and manager I have been for the last 3 years, and her family, please consider this SMS or What's app message as a notice regarding certain footage concerning pending police cases/matters concerning Arshi Khan which are sub judice.
The law requires that a woman detained by police allegedly or supposedly in a PITA case, her identity must be kept a secret and not disclosed publicly through any medium.

The law requires that the dignity of the victim woman must be protected at all cost.
However, it has become a TRP tool and Arshi Khan the victim woman who is not aware of her legal privilege vis a vis these matters as well as her legal right not to self implicate herself is being "used".
Colors and Endemol have allowed and permitted telecast of such sub judice, legally privileged matters in the current season of Bigg Boss without adding clarification or disclaimer.
Arshi Khan is not aware of her legal rights as an accused/witness in these matters.

Colors is using such privileged or protected issues for financial gain and TRPs at the cost of the dignity of a female contestant.
The matters have got widely reported in the media, particularly after the telecasted fight between Arshi and Sapna last night and Priyank's disclosure in the BB House wherein he was given undue favor/privilege by getting access to the outside world.
The Goa issue was fake news published by an unknown website & an FIR is already registered last year at Oshiwara police station u/s 509 IPC.
Please remedy the situation immediately within 24 hours with an official written statement to diffuse the bias and legal prejudice caused to Arshi Khan.
I would like to meet my client ASAP in private as per the convenience of the channel to update her regarding her legal privilege in these police matters. Please do the needful.
Sincerely, Flynn Remedios Date: 28-10-17. Pls fwd to all concerned officials at Colors & Endemol.
SpotboyE.com contacted Colors to confirm the news, to
which they said that the channel has not received any mail, message or notice
yet from Arshi Khan’s publicist.
This is not the first time when Bigg Boss 11 has been in legal trouble. Before this, Ex contestant Zubair Khan also filed a complaint against Salman Khan for defaming him on national television.
Coming back to Arshi Khan, recently news about Arshi being married to a 50-year-old man and lying about her age also surfaced.
As far as this legal issue is concerned, let’s see what development takes place.
