Daler Mehndi reacts to his conviction in the 2003 human trafficking case; says he will appeal in higher court
After 15 years, Daler Mehndi was convicted in the 2003 human trafficking case by a local Punjab court. The actor and his brother, Shamsher Singh, have been accused of illegally dropping off Indian people in America in return of huge amount of money. However, in a shocking development, Daler was granted bail minutes after being sentenced to imprisonment for two years. And while his counsel is all set to move to the High Court against his conviction, the singer has finally given his first reaction. In Punjab, the singer told the media, “I have been granted bail. We will appeal in higher court.”
For the uninitiated, Daler and his brother have been accused of allegedly taking 10 people as group members to America and dropping them off illegally in the foreign country. In 1998, they had allegedly dropped off three girls at San Francisco and in October 1999, both the brothers dropped off another three boys at New Jersey. They charged a huge “passage money” to help these people migrate to America in an illegal manner. After coming to know about this practice, a man named Bakshish Singh, filed a case at the Patiala police station in 2003. Thirty five more people came out and made some shocking revelations.
