Court clears singer Daler Mehndi's US visit

Mehndi was dragged into a headline-grabbing controversy in October last year when Punjab Police arrested him in a multi-million human trafficking case. The singer was, however, released after sufficient evidence was not found against him.

The police have now moved an application seeking his discharge in the case.

Mehndi was nominated to lead India's I-Day parade in the US. Last year, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan had received the same honour.

The singer's counsel moved an application in a court here this week seeking release of his passport for the US visit. The singer would also visit other countries during the year for shows.

Mehndi was earlier allowed to go abroad in March after his passport was released for a concert trip to Pakistan when the Indian cricket team was touring there.

The singer's passport is deposited with the court of the chief judicial magistrate here.

Mehndi and his brother had been accused of illegally taking youths abroad as members of the singer's troupe for shows. The singer was nabbed by police last year after evading arrest for over two months.
