Music composer and rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has been accused of domestic violence and mental harassment by his wife Shalini Talwar. A police case was registered against the singer on August 3.

In her statement to the police, Shalini alleged that she has been subjected to numerous incidents of "physical, emotional, mental and verbal abuse." Shalini added in her plea that Honey Singh "showed no shame in attacking, browbeating, manhandling, cheating and causing irreparable harm to the woman he was supposed to cherish and protect. The Applicant, on the other hand, brought back (Singh) from the abyss into light." She also demanded a compensation of Rs 20 crore from him.

Shalini mentioned in her plea that she was once locked inside her room without food for more than 18 hours. She was also allegedly forced to quit her job. "The respondent (Honey Singh) broke the applicant as an individual, mentally and emotionally. The applicant, due to the continuous cruelty imposed on her, almost started identifying herself as a farm animal, shepherded from here to there while being treated cruelly," the plea claimed.

Honey Singh and Shalini, who dated for nearly 10 years, tied the knot on January 23, 2011. They got married at Delhi's Sarojini Nagar Gurudwara in the presence of their family and friends.
