The court dismissed the plea and sentenced two years imprisonment to Punjabi singer Daler Mehendi.

Mumbai: Singer Daler Mehndi was on Thursday sentenced to two years in prison in a 2003 human trafficking case. The court dismissed the plea today and the singer was arrested and sent to jail. As soon as the sentencing was announced, the singer was taken into custody by the Punjab Police.

Daler Mehndi’s application for release on probation has also been dismissed by the court, Advocate Gurmeet Singh, the complainant’s lawyer, said.

In the complaint, Daler Mehndi and his brother Shamsher Singh have been accused of allegedly taking money to illegally send people abroad, concealing them as the “troupe” members. The case against Daler Mehndi was registered at the Patiala Sadar police station. The case alleged that Daler Mehndi and Shamsher Singh took two troupes to the US in 1998 and 1999.

The court pronounced Daler Mehendi guilty and the judgement was announced. The case dates back to 2003 and a total of 31 cases have been filed against Daler Mehndi and his brother Shamsher Singh.

Both Daler Mehndi and Shamsher Singh got two-year jail terms in 2018. They were, however, released on bail and filed appeals.
