Recently, the Mumbai police received a complaint accusing rapper Honey Singh and his team of kidnapping and assaulting the owner of an event management agency. Currently, the BKC police are investigating the matter and have registered an FIR in the case. Honey Singh has finally spoken out on the allegations of him being involved in the kidnapping and assault. He strongly denied any involvement and stated that the complaint against him is “false” and “baseless.”
In a statement shared on Instagram, Honey Singh said that there was no connection or agreement between his company and the complainant, which the media had been reporting. He further explained that he was engaged for the Mumbai show through a reputable company called Tribevibe, which is a sister concern of Bookmyshow. He performed for the duration of the permitted time and then left.
Honey Singh went on to say that the allegations made against him were an attempt to tarnish his image and that his legal team is already working on filing a defamation case against the accuser. The rapper emphasized that all such allegations were false.
The complainant, Vivek Ravi Raman, the owner of Festivina Music Festival, alleged that a dispute erupted after the cancellation of an event. The complainant claimed that the singer and his team members kidnapped and assaulted him. The incident reportedly took place after Raman had organized a music festival titled Yo Yo Honey Singh 3.0 by Festivina on April 15 at MMRDA Grounds in BKC.
According to Raman’s complaint, he visited the venue on the day of the event and had an argument over non-payment. Following the argument, Raman decided to call off the event. Allegedly, the Punjabi singer and his crew became upset and angry and attacked him. Raman also stated that he was kidnapped and taken to JW Marriott, Sahar, Mumbai by the singer and his team, where he was physically assaulted, resulting in severe injuries.
The police are verifying the complaint and are yet to register an FIR in the case.
