Mumbai: One of the strongest, popular and much-hyped contestants of Bigg Boss 15, Umar Riaz got eliminated from the show. His eviction came as a punishment to him over his physical spat with Pratik Sehajpal.

It is to be noted that Umar Riaz has won several polls and votes on social media. He also won the Ticket To Finale last week and was even a VIP member of the house. Despite all this, Umar is now out of the house.
