Mika said, “It was not that I got arrested, in fact I had voluntarily gone to the police station to complete the formalities by recording my statement and getting the procedure completed … and I have fully cooperated with the investigation.”
He further added that, “As far as the doctor is concerned I have no personal grudges against him, but as a responsible person I thought I should help someone and it was only a reaction to someone misbehaving with a lady in public.”
Even his famous brother singer Daler Mehndi, said, “I got to know from Mika’s assistants that he didn’t really get arrested. He was called in by the police for investigation. It’s heartening that celebrities are not beyond the reach of law anymore.”
RA Sanjeev, Deputy commissioner of police has confirmed that Mika was in fact arrested, “Through the notice, we had asked him to reach the Inderpuri police station by 3pm on Thursday. Singh arrived at the police station before 3pm and was arrested. He was later released after he furnished a personal bond.”
Dr Shrikant, who had served a legal notice to Mika two weeks ago, suing him for defamation and asking for `1 crore as damages, says he is satisfied with the way the cops are handling the case.
