NEW DELHI — Singer Mika Singh has been arrested by Delhi police for allegedly assaulting a doctor at a concert that was held in April.

Dr. Shrikant was attending a performance organised by the Delhi Ophthalmological Society at the Pusa institute ground in Inderpuri.

A case was registered against the singer in April for causing hurt and wrongfully restraining the doctor.

According to a PTI report, the doctor, who was posted at Ambedkar Hospital, had suffered some internal injury inside his left ear due to the assault.

"While performing, Mika had called some of the audience on stage for an activity. During the activity, something done by the doctor irked Mika who then slapped him and handed him to the bouncers," a police official told PTI.

This is not the first time the singer has been arrested. In 2013, Singh was arrested at the Mumbai international airport for allegedly carrying Indian and foreign currency beyond permissible limits. He was found in possession of $12,000 and Rs 3 lakh in cash.
