As rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh failed to appear before a local court in Delhi in regard to a domestic violence case filed by his wife Shalini Talwar, the court said that “no one is above the law”. As per a report by ANI, the court also directed Honey Singh to appear before it on the next hearing date i.e. on September 3. According to news agency PTI, metropolitan magistrate Tania Singh said, “No one is above the law. Surprised to see how this case is being taken so lightly”. The court told the singer’s lawyer, “Honey Singh has not appeared. You have not filed his income affidavit and are not prepared with the arguments”.

The court has asked for Yo Yo Honey Singh’s medical report and details of his income tax returns (ITRs). Singh’s counsel said that they will file his medical records and income tax returns at the earliest. Also, he sought an exemption from personal appearance stating that Singh is unwell. The lawyer also assured the court that Honey will appear at his next hearing.

For the unversed, Honey Singh’s wife Shalini had filed a domestic violence case against the singer under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. Delhi’s Tis Hazari court issued a notice to Honey Singh and sought his response on the domestic violence allegations.

Later, he responded to his wife’s allegations on social media with a lengthy statement. In the statement, Honey Singh wrote that he is “deeply pained and distressed by the false and malicious allegations levied against” him and his family by his wife. He called the allegations “severely odious”.

He added, “I have never issued a public statement or press note in the past despite being subjected to harsh criticism for my lyrics, speculation on my health, & negative media coverage in general. However, I see no merit in maintaining a studied silence this time because some of the allegations have been directed at my family – my old parents and younger sister – who have stood by me during some very difficult and trying times and comprise my world. The allegations are cynical and defaming in nature”.
