    Bigg Boss 17: Did Ankita Lokhande eliminate Abhishek Kumar after slap incident? Here's what we know

    Speculations are rife that Abhishek Kumar will be the next contestant to be eliminated from the Bigg Boss 17 house after Neil Bhatt and Rinku Dhawan. It is also rumoured that the house captain, Ankita Lokhande, would be given the power to determine the actor's fate on the show. As per reports from The Khabri, Ankita decided to evict Abhishek for slapping Samarth Jurel. While there’s no official confirmation about the same, the netizens have come out in support of Abhishek and called it an unfair eviction.

    Things took an ugly turn when Abhishek raised his hand at Samarth for constantly poking and targeting him in the earlier episode of the show. He took this step after Samarth tried to put tissue in his mouth. It all happened when Isha Malviya and Abhishek engaged in an ugly verbal spat and Samarth joined her to drag his mental health and parents. In a fit of rage, Abhishek slapped Samarth, leaving everyone shocked. However, Abhishek realised his mistake and has been apologising to the Bigg Boss since the incident happened.

    Reacting to the ongoing reports of Abhishek’s eviction, a social media user wrote, “This sooo unfair 💔 jo Banda deserving tha akela show main jaan dal rha tha usi nikal diya.” The second user commented, “Are guys don’t assume let’s wait I don’t think he is evicted other pages saying it’s fake he isn’t eliminated it will be decided on WKW whether to nominate for the whole remaining season or eliminate.” “He deserved better even if he gets evicted at least by Salman khan not Ankita,” added another user. “How come captains get a chance to eliminate contestants? It's an insult to the audience. Why is audience voting then when you eliminate contestants with cheap tactics,” read a comment.

    Meanwhile, there are chances that the host Salman Khan will announce Abhishek’s comeback on the Weekend Ka Vaar episode. He will re-introduce the actor back in the game just like he did with Archana Gautam in the previous Bigg Boss season. She was ousted from the Bigg Boss 16 house after she got violent with Shiv Thakare, however, Salman brought her back citing that there was a strategy to provoke her and get her evicted. Well, it is yet to be seen in the upcoming episode if Abhishek Kumar remains or gets eliminated from the show.
