By 16th March 2018 0 Comments


Punjabi pop singer Daler Mehndi was on Friday convicted in a 2003 human trafficking case by a court in Patiala, reports ANI. He has been given two years in jail.
He was, however, granted bail by the court shortly after.
Daler and his brother, Shamsher Singh, had been accused of illegally sending people abroad disguised as members of his troupe by charging hefty “passage money.”
It was also alleged that Mehndi brothers had taken two troupes in 1998 and 1999 during which 10 people were taken to the US as group members and were “dropped off” illegally.

Soon after the Patiala Police registered a case against Daler and Shamsher on a complaint filed by one Bakshish Singh, more complaints came up levelling charges of fraud against the two brothers.
Patiala Police had even 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.
