Playback singer Adnan Sami, facing charges of cruelty and cheating in a criminal case filed by his wife Sabah Galadari, has been arrested and granted bail.

Sami was called to Oshiwara police station last night. He was asked to give two sureties of Rs 15,000 each, his lawyer Vibhav Krishna said today.

Sami was granted anticipatory bail by the Bombay High Court which ruled that if the police wanted to arrest him they should intimate him in advance and grant bail.

In keeping with the High Court directive, the police called Sami and asked him to give sureties, his lawyer said.
Sabah had filed a criminal case alleging that Adnan had cheated her and subjected her to cruelty. She claimed that the singer had tried to remove her from the house and alleged that he had an affair with another woman.

Fearing arrest, the singer moved the sessions court which rejected his plea for anticipatory bail. He then moved the High Court which granted him bail.

Sabah and Adnan are also fighting over the ownership of flats in Lokhandwala complex of suburban Andheri which he has gifted to her.
