Punjabi singer Yo Yo Honey Singh on Friday moved an application seeking that the domestic violence case filed against him by his wife be heard in camera, which was granted by a Delhi court.
Metropolitan Magistrate Tania Singh called Honey Singh and his wife Shalini Talwar to her chamber and counselled them for long.
In the last hearing, the court had pulled up the singer after he failed to appear before it and gave him final warning. “No one is above the law,” the judge had said.
Singh’s lawyer and senior advocate Rebecca John moved an application seeking to conduct the proceedings in camera, which will be considered on the next date of hearing.
On September 28, the court will hear Shalini’s plea on interim compensation. She has sought a compensation of Rs 20 crore, return of her dowry and has also asked the court to direct her husband to pay Rs 5 lakh per month for a fully furnished house at a prominent location in Delhi.
In her plea, Talwar has charted out how she was allegedly physically assaulted by Singh over the last 10 years of their marriage. She also alleged that Honey Singh cheated on her.
The 38-year-old woman claimed that Singh and his family broke her mentally and emotionally to the extent that she almost started identifying herself as a “farm animal”.
Hirdesh Singh, known professionally as Yo Yo Honey Singh, and Talwar tied the knot on January 23, 2011.
