Singer Shaan took to his Instagram handle and shared a letter from the Indian Singers Rights’ Association (ISRA) seeking government intervention in the recent Sonu Nigam selfie scuffle incident. The incident took place on Monday night at a music festival in Chembur. Reacting to it, Shaan questioned the security and safety in the city. The official letter from ISRA read, “We are deeply aggrieved to know about the serious attack on our legendary singer Sonu Nigam and his team at a musical event in Chembur yesterday night.” Later, the singer filed a complaint based on which the Chembur police registered an FIR against Swapnil, the son of MLA Prakash Phaterpekar, under Indian Penal Code Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (wrongful restraint), and 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others). The sister of the accused, Suprada Phaterpekar, a member of the Maharashtra State Commission for Women, reacted to the incident on Twitter, issuing an apology and requesting people not to believe any baseless rumours.
