Delhi: Singer Mika Singh arrested for assaulting a doctor; granted bail
New Delhi, June 11: The Delhi Police on Thursday arrested singer Mika Singh for assaulting a doctor during a programme.
Police said the singer was called to the Inderpuri police station in connection with the assault on Shrikant, an ophthalmologist posted at Ambedkar Hospital, and later arrested.
The incident had taken place on April 11 at a concert organised by the Delhi Ophthalmological Society (DOS) at the Delhi Pusa Institute Mela Ground in Inderpuri.
Soon after the incident, the victim's colleagues created a ruckus at the venue but police immediately intervened and promised action against Mika following which an FIR was filed.
Mika had then defended himself claiming the guy was drunk and causing disruption.
Delhi Police registered a case of causing hurt and wrongful restraint against him at Inderpuri police station even as a video of the alleged incident appeared on some websites.
The victim Shrikant, an ophthalmologist posted at Ambedkar Hospital, suffered some internal injury inside his left ear due to the assault.
The incident took place at a concert organised by the Delhi Ophthalmological Society (DOS) as a part of their three-day conference being held at the Delhi Pusa Institute Mela Ground in Inderpuri.
"While performing, Mika had called some of the audience on stage for an activity. During the activity, something done by the doctor irked Mika who then slapped him and handed him to the bouncers," said a police official.
In yet another controversy, Mika Singh was also accused of cheating an event management firm owner of Rs 27 lakh.
