Pop singer Daler Mehndi convicted gets 2 year jail for Human Trafficking

Pop singer Daler Mehndi convicted gets 2 year jail for Human Trafficking

A case against Daler Mehndi, his brother Shamsher and some of his associates was registered by the Patiala police following a complaint filed by one Bakshish Singh of Balbehra village in Punjab in 2003.

The complainant had alleged that he had been duped by the Mehndi brothers who received lakhs of rupees from him on the pretext of sending him abroad as a member of the troupe of Daler Mehndi. Shamsher died in October 2017. Shamsher was a part of brother Daler Mehndi's troupe and performed at several stage shows.

After the case was registered, many people came forward with similar complaints against the two brothers.

The complaints had alleged that Daler Mehndi and his brother Shamsher Singh had taken "passage money" from them to help them migrate to the US "illegally", but had failed to do so.

Patiala Police raided the offices of Daler Mehndi at Connaught Place in New Delhi and seized documents, including the case file of those who had paid the alleged "passage money" to Mehndi brothers.

In 2006, Patiala Police filed two discharge petitions stating Daler Mehndi to be innocent, but the court had upheld that the singer be prosecuted as there was "sufficient evidence against him on the judicial file and scope for further investigation".

The first discharge petition was filed in February 2006 stating that Mehndi should be discharged of all the charges as he had been found to be innocent in the case.

After this police again filed an application to discharge him but again Court rejected the second application and ordered the police to file a fresh challan against Mehndi.
