A Delhi court has banned Punjabi singer and music composer Yo Yo Honey Singh from creating third-party rights to real and personal property owned by him or his companies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Metropolitan Magistrate Tania Singh also ordered Honey Singh to file documents from her registered companies overseas, said his wife’s lawyer who filed a domestic violence complaint against him.
The investigation came on an application filed by his wife Shalini Talwar alleging that her husband is in the process of creating third party rights and disposing of certain assets in Dubai.
She was represented by lawyer Sandeep Kapur, Senior Partner Karanjawala & Company, as well as lawyers Apoorva Pandey and GG Kashyap.
She told the court that Honey Singh had a “chic villa” in Dubai measuring 333.73 square meters which he had purchased for her through one of her overseas incorporated companies.
The singer’s wife claimed that her husband executed a general power of attorney on November 19, 2019, in her favor, giving her rights and control over all of her movable and immovable property located in the United Arab Emirates. She said there is “grave apprehension” that her husband may revoke this general power of attorney.
The 38-year-old has asked the court to prevent Honey Singh from revoking the power of attorney, disposing or creating third-party rights over the assets he owns in Dubai individually or through his company.
Ms Talwar also called for a directive preventing her from changing the management of one of her overseas companies and maintaining the status quo of all movable and immovable property based in the United Arab Emirates.
The case is now on the list for the filing of reply and arguments on September 17.
Hirdesh Singh, professionally known as Yo Yo Honey Singh, and Ms. Talwar married on January 23, 2011.
In her plea for domestic violence, she explained how she was allegedly physically assaulted by Honey Singh during the last ten years of their marriage. She also alleged that Honey Singh had cheated on her. She asked for 20 crore rupees as compensation from her singer-actor husband under the Protection of Women Against Domestic Violence Act.
