Honey Singh Skipped Court Appearance In Ongoing Domestic Violence Case Filed By Wife
Honey Singh received legal word for missing a court hearing.
Earlier this month, Shalini Talwar filed a domestic violence case against her singer-actor husband and sought ₹ 20 crore as compensation from him under the Protection of Women From Domestic Violence Act.
The court was not happy with his absence. “No one is above the law. Surprised to see how this case is being taken so lightly,” metropolitan magistrate Tania Singh said.
Singh moved an application seeking exemption from appearance in the case, citing medical reasons. Meanwhile, his wife, Shalini Talwar, appeared in court.
Expressing discontentment, Singh’s lawyer was told the court, “Honey Singh has not appeared. You have not filed his income affidavit and are not prepared with the arguments.”
The metropolitan magistrate has given Singh one “last opportunity” to appear before the court and asked him to ensure conduct like this is not repeated. The next hearing is set for September 3.
Advocate Ishan Mukherjee, appearing for Honey Singh, filed a reply to her complaint and apprised the court that she has already taken all the valuables with her, including jewellery, and can come to reside at her in-laws’ home in Noida in about 15 days.
“We are ready to accommodate her. We will build a wall. It can be provided to her in 15 days,” Mr Mukherjee said.
“Singh’s counsel apprised the court about Honey Singh’s two properties costing four crores out of which property one property has joint ownership of Shalini and Honey Singh,” reported the ANI.
Professionally Yo Yo Honey Singh, Hirdesh Singh tied the knot with Talwar on January 23, 2011. According to her petition, for years she has been taking the brunt of physical, verbal and emotional abuse by her husband and his family. She has also alleged that Singh had affairs outside of the marriage and has been adulterous.
Honey Singh had rubbished the allegations citing them false and malicious.
