Daler Mehndi has been sentenced to 2-year jail term in human trafficking case registered against him in 2003. Patiala Police take singer into custody.
Daler Mehndi and his brother Shamsher Singh had been accused of illegally sending people abroad disguised as members of his troupe by charging hefty “passage money”.
In 2018, the court of Judicial Magistrate First Class had held both the brothers guilty and had sentenced them to two years in jail, following which they were granted bail and later they filed an appeal in the sessions court.
Mehndi was convicted under sections 406, 420, 120B, 465, 468, 471 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Indian Passport Act after an FIR at the Sadar Patiala police station back in 2003. The court has punished the Punjabi singer for two years against the appeal.
