A Haryanavi folk singer reportedly attempted suicide on Sunday by consuming poison in Delhi’s Nazafgarh area. She is now in a stable condition.
An FIR was lodged by the Gurgaon Police only on Sunday evening against Nawab Satpal Tanwar, though Choudhary had lodged a police complaint against him a few days ago. She has accused Tanwar — who runs a social organisation called Nigahein — of abetting her suicide by running an online campaign and casting aspersions on her character, in a note purportedly written by her.
“The case has been lodged under sections 354A (molestation) and 506 (criminal intimidation) against Satpal Tanwar. We are investigating the case,” said Kailash Devi, SHO of Women Police Station, Gurgaon.
Sapna Chaudhary, was depressed after two cases were registered against her for hurting the community by singing folk song ‘Ragini’ during a stage performance in Gurgaon in February this year. Based on Tanwar’s complaint, the Gurgaon police had also registered a case against the singer and set up a special investigation team to probe the allegations.
The singer before attempting suicide had also apologised, promising that she won’t perform the song again.
“I, Sapna chaudhary, once sung the song Ragini sometime back which was based on all the castes. This hurt the feelings of Dalit society. I did not want to hurt the feelings of anybody. I tender my apology before all the brothers and sisters and assure that in future I will not sing this type of Ragini,” Sapna Chaudhary said in her statement.
A case has been registered by the police, and doctors say that her condition is stable now. Also, a couple of artists including Jyoti Jiya, Dev Kumar, N.D. Dahiya and Ram Meher Mehla, have urged Gurgaon police to ensure justice for Sapna.
