The High Court had sentenced Veer Singh to three months of simple imprisonment for contempt of court. .A division bench of Justices Suresh Kumar Kait and Neena Bansal Krishna had further ordered the local Station House Officer (SHO) to issue arrest warrants against Singh and to get a Look Out Circular (LOC) issued against him..This prompted Veer Singh to approach the Supreme Court in appeal. In an interim application, Singh also urged the top court to exempt him from surrendering before the authorities..The High Court's order came in a plea filed by Singh’s wife, Kinri Dhir (Singh denies marrying her) to initiate contempt of court proceedings against him for flouting the orders of the Court.Dhir stated that on June 1, 2023, Singh undertook to the High Court that he will continue to pay maintenance to Dhir and that the maintenance for the month of May will be transferred within 24 hours. Dhir said that this was not complied with. Singh’s counsel also admitted that the order has not been complied with. However, the counsel added that the contempt petition is not maintainable.When the High Court had ordered him to be physically present on the next date of hearing, Singh’s counsel stated that his client is not in India and therefore, could not appear in Court.The High Court had observed that it was evident that Singh was not willing to purge the contempt by complying with the orders.The bench then sentenced him to three months of simple imprisonment for contempt of Court, leading to the present appeal..Senior Advocate Pinky Anand appeared for Kinri Dhar before the top court today.
