  • Indian singer Mika Singh

Questioning is underway, a member of the singer's team confirmed.

Singh has sought consular access and the embassy staff is working on his case, Indian Ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri was quoted as saying in the report.

Bollywood singer Mika Singh has been detained in Dubai after a Brazilian girl complained that he sent her obscene messages.

Popular Indian singer Mika Singh was arrested in Abu Dhabi in the UAE on Thursday for allegedly sending objectionable photos to a teenage model.


The singer was in Dubai for his music show, reports said.

Mika had recently travelled to the Arab nation to perform at a Bollywood event, which was reportedly the Masala Awards. Complaint was lodged at the Muraqqabaat police station and Mika has been taken to Abu Dhabi jail. "He will be produced before a court today", Suri told the news agency.

In 2006, the controversial Rakhi Sawant filed a case against Mika for forcibly kissing her during her birthday celebrations in Mumbai.

Earlier this week, the "Aaj Ki Party" singer took to his Instagram account to share a video from Dubai.
