No one above Law: Court raps Honey Singh for not appearing in Domestic Violence Case


On Saturday, a Delhi Court came down heavily on Punjabi Singer & Actor Yo Yo Honey Singh for not appearing before it in a domestic violence case filed by his wife.

Metropolitan Magistrate Tania Singh said that "No one is above the law. Surprised to see how this case is being taken so lightly".

Singh moved a plea seeking exemption from appearance in the case, citing medical reasons. Meanwhile, his wife, Shalini Talwar, appeared physically before the Court.

Expressing displeasure, the court told Singh's lawyer, "Honey singh has not appeared. You have not filed his income affidavit & are not prepared with the arguments."

The metropolitan magistrate gave Singh one last opportunity to appear before the court, & asked him not to repeat this conduct again.

Shalini Talwar has filed a domestic violence case against her singer-actor husband & sought Rs 20 crore as compensation from him under the Protection of Women From Domestic Violence Act.

Advocate Ishan Mukherjee, appearing for Singh, filed a reply to her complaint & apprised the court that she has already taken all the valuables with her, including jewellery, & can come to reside at her in-laws'' home in Noida in fifteen days.

"We are ready to accommodate her. We will build a wall. It can be provided to her in 15 days," Mukherjee said, adding that Singh has two properties costing around Rs 4 crores, of which a property worth Rs 1 crore belongs to Shalini Talwar.

Hirdesh Singh, known professionally as Yo Yo Honey Singh, & Talwar tied the knot on Jan 23, 2011.

In her plea, Talwar charted out how she was physically assaulted by Singh over the last ten years. She has also alleged that Honey Singh cheated on her.

The 38-year-old woman claimed that she was subjected to numerous incidents of physical, verbal, mental, & emotional abuse at the hands of her husband & his family.

Talwar alleged that Singh & his family broke her mentally & emotionally to the extent that she almost started identifying herself as a "farm animal".
