Haryanvi singer Sapna Choudhary attempts suicide

Haryanvi singer Sapna Choudhary, who is accused of insulting a particular caste through a song at a stage show, allegedly attempted suicide at her Chhawla residence here on Sunday morning claiming that she was being harassed online.

According to the police, the condition of the singer is now stable.

A note purportedly written by the 21-year-old accuses one Satpal Tanwar of abetting her suicide by running an online campaign against her and even casting aspersions on her character, the police said.

“I am in this profession to earn a livelihood…The reason for my step is only and only Satpal Tanwar. With folded hands I appeal to those in the Haryana Cabinet to not trouble my mother after this and ensure the strictest possible punishment for Tanwar [sic],” said the note.

Satpal is the man on whose complaint the Haryana Police had booked Sapna under the SC And ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act in July.
