Famous Bollywood singer Mika Singh was on Thursday arrested briefly for allegedly slapping a doctor during a concert in Delhi two months ago.

However, according to reports, the police released Mika on bail soon after.

The singer had allegedly slapped Shrikant Sinha, an ophthalmologist, during the concert on April 11.

Mika's lawyer Sanjay Bhatnagar, however, denied the arrest and told ANI that he was only called for an investigation at Delhi's Inderpuri Police Station.

Organised by the Delhi Ophthalmological Society as part of its three-day conference at Pusa Institute ground, Inderpuri, the show was later intervened by the police. They later registered an FIR against the singer.

While Mika maintained that his act was aimed at protecting some women from being harassed, the doctor said he had never crossed his line and was only trying to communicate with a woman.

"When Dr. Shrikant went on stage at Mika's insistence, he was first asked why he disagreed with the singer's directions. He was then slapped and escorted away from the stage by two of Mika's bouncers," a senior police official had informed The Hindu.

Mika and his bouncers were booked under Sections 341/34 (wrongful restraint and common intention) and Section 323 (causing hurt) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
