Daler Mehndi sentenced to 2 years in prison for human trafficking

Earlier in the day, the Patiala Court sentenced Daler Mehndi to two years of imprisonment in connection with a 2003 human trafficking case after he was found guilty. The two have been found guilty for illegally sending people overseas through his musical troupe and charging "passage fees" from them.

Complaint: A case was registered with Patiala Police against Daler Mehndi and Shamsher by Bakshish Singh.

Now, we don't know what the truth behind this story is, but be sure that you will hear it here FIRST when it's out.

The Mehndi brothers allegedly took two troupes in 1998 and 1999 during which 10 people were taken to the United States as group members and were "dropped off" illegally.

As many as 35 charges of fraud were leveled against the two brothers for charging "passage fees" in return of "relocation" to the US, but failing to do so.

In the wake of the announcement, Senator Charles Schumer from NY urged Toys R Us to provide cash for consumers' unused gift cards. It's likely to also liquidate its businesses in Australia, France, Poland, Portugal and Spain, according to the recording.

On a trip to the U.S with an actress, Mehdi reportedly "dropped off" three women in San Francisco, and on a later trip, also "dropped off" three men in New Jersey.

In 2003, it was alleged that Daler along with his brother Smasher Singh were misusing their two troupes which were formed in 1998 and 1999.

The case has been under judiciary for a long time now as it was filed back in 2003 and has been under investigation since then. It was alleged that the brothers had taken passage money from them to migrate them to the U.S. illegally, but had failed to do so. The Punjabi pop singer was arrested after the case was registered but was released on bail after a few days. The court upheld that there was enough evidence to prosecute them.

The singer's brother Shamsher, who was a songwriter and record producer, passed away in October due to suffering of jaundice.
