Bollywood singer Mika Singh was on Thursday granted bail in New Delhi, by Metropolitan Magistrate Sujit Saurabh, after he appeared in court.

The court was hearing a private complaint filed by a doctor alleging that the singer slapped him during a live music concert in Inderpuri area in New Delhi in April 2015. The singer was charged with voluntarily causing hurt and wrongful restraint, which he has denied.

Singh was asked to provide a personal bond of Rs20,000 (Dh1,103) and a surety of a similar amount.

“I am grateful to the Honbl’e court for granting me bail today. I am a law abiding citizen and always be one,” Singh tweeted later.

Singh is known for giving several hits, including Sawan mein lag gayi aag, Mauja hi mauja, Dhanno and Dhinka chika.
