‘This girl said if I don’t give her `5crore, she’d ruin my ca­reer’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Singer Mika Singh is­sued a state­ment late Tues­day night fol­low­ing re­ports which said that a mo­lesta­tion com­plaint was filed against the Gandi Baat hit­maker.

A Mum­bai-based model filed a com­plaint at the city’s Versova Po­lice Sta­tion, ac­cus­ing Mika of falsely promis­ing her act­ing and mod­el­ling jobs. “A woman named Priyanka Ku­mar filed an FIR against Mika Singh on Tues­day evening. It’s a case of mo­lesta­tion,” a po­lice of­fi­cial was quoted as say­ing.

Tak­ing quick ac­tion, Mika is­sued a state­ment the same night, claim­ing that he did not even know the model. “To­day morn­ing at around 5am, one girl barged into my premises by en­ter­ing through the win­dow and started abus­ing and as­sault­ing me and my staff. She threat­ened that if I don’t pay her `5 crore, she’d ruin my ca­reer and reg­is­ter a false case against me,” read the 39-year-old’s state­ment.

“I’ve al­ready in­formed the po­lice in writ­ing re­gard­ing the threats and ex­tor­tion. I don’t know who this girl is. I have ev­i­dence against her de­mand­ing money from me. Po­lice is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mat­ter and truth will be out,” the state­ment read fur­ther.

A po­lice of­fi­cial says an al­ter­ca­tion broke out be­tween the two. “The model has stated that Mika grabbed her by the hair and pushed her around. He also as­saulted her,” the of­fi­cial was quoted as say­ing.
