Punjabi singer Yo Yo Honey Singh today moved an application seeking that the domestic violence case filed against him by his wife be heard in-camera.
Metropolitan Magistrate Tania Singh called Honey Singh and his wife Shalini Talwar to her chamber and they are still being counselled. Later, the counsels for both parties were also called by the Magistrate in her chambers.
In the last hearing, the court had pulled up Honey Singh after he failed to appear before it and gave him a final warning.
"No one is above the law," the judge had said.
Ms Talwar has filed the domestic violence case against her singer-actor husband and sought ₹ 20 crore as compensation from him under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.
Hirdesh Singh, known professionally as Yo Yo Honey Singh, and Shalini Talwar got married on January 23, 2011.
In her plea, Ms Talwar has charted out how she was allegedly physically assaulted by Honey Singh over the last ten years of their marriage. She also alleged that Honey Singh cheated on her.
The 38-year-old woman claimed that Honey Singh and his family broke her mentally and emotionally to an extent that she almost started identifying herself as a "farm animal".
