Mika Singh gets relief in assault case filed by a doctor

Bollywood singer Mika Singh, accused in an assault case, can now heave a sigh of relief. A Delhi court on Tuesday asked the complainant to settle the case against the ‘440 Volt’ singer through mutual agreement.

Metropolitan Magistrate Sujit Saurabh observed that the case is of compoundable nature, and allowed the 38-year-old singer and the plaintiff doctor to settle the issue mutually. The complainant had alleged that the singer slapped him during a live musical concert in Delhi’s Inderpuri area in April 2015.  

Mika was charged with voluntarily causing hurt and wrongful restraint, which he has denied.

Earlier, the court granted him bail on January 16 and was asked to furnish a personal bond of Rs.20, 000 and surety of a like amount.

"I am grateful to the Honbl'e court for granting me bail today. I am a law abiding citizen and always be one," Mika had later tweeted.

A livewire performer, Mika is known for hits like 'Sawan mein lag gaye aag', 'Mauja hi mauja', 'Dhanno, 'Dhinka chika', 'Desi beat', 'Subah hone na de', 'Pungi', 'Chinta ta ta' and 'Main tere agal bagal hun'.
