Sunday 11 June
That a peck on the cheek can certainly degenerate into a molestation and assault was brought home in the strange case of the "liplock" between "item girl" Rakhi Sawant - recently in the news for being booked for obscenity over a stage show in Kolhapur - and Punjabi "pop singer" Mika Singh - better known as the brother of Daler Mehendi. In her complaint lodged at the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai, Rakhi Sawant stated that Mika "grabbed and kissed her" on the dance floor and got his bodyguard to rough up a friend when she objected to his behaviour. Though Rakhi and Mika were first seen being "friendly" at Mika's birthday party, exchanging kisses on cheeks, and smearing cake on each other, the "inappropriate" kiss surprised Rakhi. As the kiss-contoversey bacame the headlines of news channels, Rakhi told reporters that "Mika took advantage of our friendship and misbehaved with me. He bit my lips twice and in the process my earring broke... I am an Indian woman. I will not allow a liplock - a peck on the cheek is okay." Police have registered a case of molestation and assault against Singh and his bodyguard, who was identified as "Tiger", on the basis of Rakhi's complaint but no arrests have been made.
