A 2006 first information report (FIR) and chargesheet alleging that model Rakhi Sawant had abused by the singer Mika Singh were annulled by consent by the Bombay High Court on Thursday.

A division bench composed of Justices AS Gadkari and SG Dige granted Mika Singh’s request to dismiss the case on the grounds that the parties had reached an amicable and conclusive agreement.

The court was informed by Sawant’s attorney that she did not object to the FIR being thrown out.

On June 11, 2006, Singh forcibly kissed Rakhi Sawant at his birthday party at a restaurant in the Mumbai suburbs, prompting the filing of the FIR. Video footage and still photographs of the party were included in the extensive media coverage of the incident.

Singh was arrested for violating Sections 354 (molestation) and 323 (assault) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on the basis of the complaint.

After the incident, it is said that Singh went missing for a few days. On June 17, 2006, he applied to a sessions court for anticipatory bail, which was granted.

Sawant even stated in a sworn affidavit that she has no objection to the Court granting the requested relief, Singh stated in his plea to the High Court. Singh also stated that the two parties had settled the dispute between themselves.

The Court was informed by Singh’s attorney, Falguni Brahmabhat, that the case has been in limbo for 17 years.

“Despite the fact that a chargesheet has been filed against the accused (Singh), charges have not yet been formulated. She informed the Court that Singh and Sawant “have buried the hatchet, resolved their issues, and are now friends.”

After considering the arguments, the court dismissed the case.
