A court in Patiala recently convicted famous bhangra-pop singer Daler Mehndi in a 15-year-old human trafficking case. He was sentenced to two years in jail and was later granted bail.
Police had registered a case against Mehndi, his brother Shamsher Singh — who died in last October — and two others after it was alleged that the accused took money from people to the tune of 1 crore on the pretext of taking them abroad.
