Singer Mika Singh was arrested last night in Dubai following complaint of sexual misconduct against him.
Bollywood singer Mika Singh, who was arrested in United Arab Emirates (UAE) Thursday night after a complaint of alleged harassment against him, has been released from detention. Singh was arrested for allegedly sending “indecent pictures” to a teenaged Brazilian model.
In her complaint, the model said that the singer has sent her inappropriate pictures, Gulf News reported quoting sources. Mika also promised her a job in a Bollywood movie, it said. Singh was in Dubai to perform at a party when he was arrested.
Mika Singh was arrested at 3 AM from Bur Durbar and was lodged in custody at the Muraqqabaat police station.
“Following efforts by the embassy, singer Mika was released at 1130 last night. He will be produced before a court today,” Indian Ambassador to UAE, Navdeep Singh Suri told news agency ANI. The Indian embassy had sought consular access to Singh following his arrest. Legal proceedings have been initiated against the singer, news agency PTI reported.
