In¬†2006,Patiala Police filed two discharge petitions stating Daler Mehndi to be innocent,but the court had upheld that the singer be prosecuted as there was “sufficient evidence against him on the judicial file and scope for further investigation”,NDTV reported.

It was also alleged that Mehndi brothers had taken two troupes in 1998 and 1999 during which 10 people were taken to the US as group members and were “dropped off” illegally.
