Rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh shared a post after his friend, singer Amanjot Singh, also known as Alfaaz Singh, was injured and hospitalized after an altercation at a dhaba (restaurant) in Punjab. Alfaaz was hit with a pickup beat after an altercation broke out between him, the restaurant owner and the suspect on Landran-Banur Road in Mohali.
According to reports, the singer was leaving the Pal Dhaba after having dinner with his friends on Sunday evening. An argument was taking place between the suspect Vicky and the owner of the restaurant over money-related matters. He asked Alfaaz to mediate, then tried to flee with a rhythm belonging to the owner of the dhaba. He rammed into Alfaaz, who was seriously injured. A case has been registered against Vicky at the Sohana Police Station.
Honey Singh confirmed the same on her Instagram handle and wrote, “My brother @itsaslialfaaz was attacked last night. However, he later deleted the post.
According to Honey Singh, the culprits hit Alfaaz with a temporary traveler as they tried to flee the dhaba. In another post, he wrote, “I just saw @itsaslialfaaz in the hospital. He’s still serious in intensive care. Please pray for him. The injured singer is being treated at Fortis Hospital in Mohali.
He then thanked the Mohali police and gave an update on Alfaaz’s state of health. He wrote in an Instagram story: “Special thanks to the Mohali Police who caught the culprits who hit Alfaaz with a tempo traveler on the road last night. Alfaaz is now out of danger too.
According to a report by The Indian Express, Alfaaz gave his statement to the police and said he was in the dhaba with his friends Teji, Kuljit and Gurpreet, when Vicky, a former employee, tried to steal the dhaba owner’s tempo. Vicky didn’t notice the singer, who stood behind the tempo and rammed into him while backing up.
Police authorities registered a case against the accused under Sections 279, 337 and 338 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at Sohana Police Station. The Sohana station house officer said, “We recovered the vehicle and arrested the accused.”
Honey Singh considers Alfaaz her brother and the duo have collaborated on songs like Haye Mera Dil, Birthday Bash and Bebo among others.
