Sonu Nigam was recently attacked at his concert by an MLA’s son for a selfie!
The incident happened at the singer’s music event at Chembur when he was leaving the venue.
Talking about the incident, Sonu Nigam told ANI, “After the concert, I was coming down from stage when a man Swapnil Prakash Phaterpekar held me. Then he pushed Hari and Rabbani who came to save me. Then I fell on steps. I have filed a complaint so that people should think about forcefully taking selfies and causing scuffle.”
The accused Swapnil has been booked under IPC sections 341 (wrongful restraint), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt).
