Singer-composer Adnan Sami on Wednesday approa-ched the sessions court for anticipatory bail in a case of dowry harassment registered against him by his wife, Saba.
She had registered the case against him on April 2, and a non-cognisable offence (Section 498-A for dowry harassment) was registered on April 14.
In the application, Sami said the charges levelled against him were false and the complaint was filed to “victimise, vex and pressurise him”. Sami also contended that he has not been living with his wife for some time now.
Sami said: “Saba has serious neurological and psychological problems and she suffers from depression and emotional stress. Doctors had advised us to keep her in good humour, tolerate her extreme behaviour and insulate her against anxiety and hypersensitivity by treating her as a patient.” He also alleged that Saba circulated false stories about him in the media.
Sami has sought anticipatory bail saying Saba has approached various courts and not been granted relief. He maintained that the allegations levelled by Saba do not fall under the preview of cruelty. The application will be heard on Friday.
