Mika faces sexual harassment charge; framed, claims team
Controversy’s favourite child, singer Mika Singh, got embroiled in yet another row. The singer, who is currently in Dubai for a concert, was detained on Thursday following a complaint by a 17-year-old Brazilian model alleging that the singer sent her inappropriate pictures.
Mika’s spokesperson, when contacted by HT, said that the singer is “being framed”, adding that his team can’t say much at present as the case is under investigation.
“Mika is being framed. The investigation is on and he is cooperating with the authorities. Soon the truth will be out,” added the spokesperson.
According to an ANI report, the singer was released late in the night following the Indian embassy intervention. “Following efforts by the embassy, singer Mika was released at 11.30pm. He will be produced before a court…,” the agency quoted Navdeep Singh Suri, Indian Ambassador to UAE, as saying. A source close to the singer shares that he will be produced in the court on Sunday.
According to reports, soon after the complaint was lodged at the Al Muraqqabaat police station in Dubai, Mika was detained from a bar in Bur Dubai, and was taken to the Abu Dhabi jail.
Seemingly unfazed by the whole incident, Mika, early on Friday morning, shared a video on Instagram promoting his song from an upcoming Rohit Shetty film. “Just had a great time with @sohailgaladari in #Dubai... Fans keep loving and supporting, and enjoy the song,” the singer wrote in his post.
