But a source in the Indian Ministry of External Affairs confirmed that Mika had been detained for questioning after the 17-year-old girl lodged a complaint of harassment.
Reports suggest that Mika has been accused of sending inappropriate photos to a 17-year-old Brazilian girl. In 2016, a Mumbai-based model had filed a complaint of molestation against Mr Singh.
Confirming the same, the Dubai Police quoted to a leading daily that the singer is in their custody.
The Indian Consulate has neither been contacted by Dubai officials nor Mika. He performed at the awards event and it was followed by a private party. ANI tweeted, "Member of Singer Mika Singh's team: Singer Mika Singh has been detained in United Arab Emirates (UAE) after a girl complained against him for alleged harassment". The complaint has been registered against him in the Muraqqabaat police station. "We are working on it", Mr Suri told news agency ANI.
