Pakistani singer Adnan Sami got relief for a day from the Bombay High Court on Monday.

Justice Mrudula Bhatkar restrained the police from arresting Sami till Tuesday.

Sami had filed for anticipatory bail on Monday fearing arrest after his estranged wife Sabah Galadari filed a complaint against him and his parents alleging harassment, intimidation and blackmailing.

On May 22, the sessions court granted anticipatory bail to Sami’s parents — Arshad Khan and mother Naureen — but rejected his bail plea.

He was, however, granted protection from arrest till Monday to allow him to approach the high court.

Justice Bhatkar kept the application for hearing on Tuesday since the detailed order of the sessions court rejecting Sami’s anticipatory bail application was not available.

The high court has asked the investigating officer to remain present with case papers on Tuesday. Sami had alleged that Galadari filed the complaint as an afterthought to target him and his parents.
