Noted playback singer Adnan Sami, who is facing arrest in a case filed by his wife Sabah, has decided to move the court for anticipatory bail.
"Adnan is ready for the legal battle and has decided to file anticipatory bail petition in sessions court in a day or two," his lawyer Vibhav Krishna said.
Following an FIR filed by Sabah against Sami accusing him of cruelty and torture, police gave the singer 72 hours notice to arrest him in keeping with a court directive.
"Sami might move the court today. In that case, the petition would come up for hearing tomorrow," Krishna said.
Adnan had earlier moved for anticipatory bail after his wife had filed a non-cognizable complaint against him in January-end at Oshiwara police station. But the court did not grant him bail, saying no case was registered against him and only a non-cognizable complaint had been filed.
However, the court, in its order last month, had asked police to give Adnan 72 hours advance notice to arrest him in case his wife filed an FIR against him.
