New Delhi, July 6 (ANI): Mika Singh has denied the molestation charges slapped by a fashion designer yesterday for misbehaving with her.

A statement released by the 39-year-old singer read, "Today morning at around 5am one girl barged into my premises by entering through window and started abusing me and assaulting me and my staff and started threatening if I don't pay her 5 crore she will ruin my career and register a false case against me I have already informed versova police in writing regarding the threats and extortion. I don't know who this girl is."

"I have all the evidence against this girl, of her demanding money from me and I have informed the police about this incident. Police is investigating the matter and truth will be out soon," he added.

For the uninitiated, according to Mumbai police sources, the victim, who complained against the 'Gandi Baat' hit-maker at the Versova Police Station, was known to the accused.

The victim went to Mika's residence this morning for some work. There was some dispute between them and allegedly some altercation took place between the accused and the victim.

The police registered a case against Mika under Sections 354 ( molestation), 323 (beating) and 504 (intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code. (ANI)
