After a few hours, Varthur Santosh left the Bigg Boss house and was arrested by the forest department.

Deputy Conservator of Forest Ravindra Kumar, in an interview with India Today, stated, “It was a public complaint after he was seen wearing tiger claws. After the complaint, we went to inspect it in the Bigg Boss studio near Komaghatta and requested the authorities to hand over the locket. After dilly-dallying for some time, they agreed to hand it over to us.”

He further explained, “I inspected the golden pendant through the proper procedure so we could find out if it was a genuine tiger claw. We further instructed the Bigg Boss authorities to produce him before us. I inquired him about it, and he said that he got it in Hosur three years ago. After he agreed in front of the camera, we arrested him at around 8:30 pm. This is a violation of the Wildlife Protection Act 1972. Tigers are considered a highly endangered species. It attracts a maximum punishment of three to seven years of punishment.”
