Sonu Nigam Attacked By MLA’s Son: Indian Singers’ Rights Association Request Maharashtra Law Enforcers To Ensure Such Incidents Never Repeat
It came as a shock to the internet after a video of renowned singer Sonu Nigam and his friends being man-handled by MLA Prakash Phatarpekar’s son Swapnil (Uddhav Thackeray faction) became viral on social media on Monday night. The event happened at the Chembur Gymkhana, when the MLA’s son allegedly pushed the singer’s teammates from the staircase near the stage. 

According to Hemraj Rajput, deputy commissioner of the police, a case has been registered against the man under sections 341 (wrongful restraint), 337 (causing hurt to any person by doing any act so rashly or negligently as to endanger human life or the personal safety of others), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Now, Indian Singers’ Rights Association (ISRA) too has requested the law enforcers to look into the matter. ALSO READ: SHOCKING!

For the unversed, a half-filled water bottle was hurled at the folk and sufi singer for singing Hindi songs by two men in their early 20s. According to the singer, he had pre-decided the sequence of his songs, when the men in anger, that he was only singing Hindi songs, threw the bottle at him, which barely missed his head.
