However, there is a question mark over she being actually arrested from the Bigg Boss reality show house sets as her publicist, according to reports, claimed to have obtained a stay order on the arrest warrant till 15 January next year, the day of the Bigg Boss 11 finale.

Court sources in Jalandhar said the arrest warrant issued against Khan had not been cancelled. The court had directed the police to enter the Bigg Boss house and arrest Khan from there.

The court of a judicial magistrate in Jalandhar issued the arrest warrant against Arshi Khan for failing to appear before the court for the past three months. The case against Khan was filed by a Jalandhar-based lawyer who said that she had violated the law and sentiments of people by painting the flags of India and Pakistan on her semi-nude body. Khan's counsel contended before the court that she (Khan) was locked up inside the Bigg Boss house set since 1 October and hence she could not appear before the court.

Sources in the Punjab Police said that they may have to wait till 15 January before taking any action against Khan.

"We will go by the directions of the court in this regard," a Punjab Police officer in Jalandhar said.
