Mika was released on Thursday night following the intervention of the Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi, Navdeep Singh Suri, the Indian Ambassador to the UAE, told Gulf News.

Suri said Mika is expected to appear in a court later, reported gulfnews.com.

The envoy said although Mika was arrested in Dubai, the police took him to Abu Dhabi as the complainant was holding an Abu Dhabi residence visa.

The singer was arrested and questioned in the UAE on Thursday for sending lewd pictures to the Brazilian teenager. Mika had gone to Dubai to perform at a Bollywood event.

As per reports, this is not the first time that Mika Singh has been involved in unlawful activities. There was a molestation case filed against the singer in 2016 for which he even lodged a counter-complaint claiming that it was extortion. Actress and television personality Rakhi Sawant has also claimed that Singh had tried to forcibly kiss her at Sawant's birthday party that year. There was another case where the singer was arrested and later released for assaulting a doctor during one of his concerts.
