The Indian Singers' Rights Association (ISRA) has urged the government to seriously consider it after singer Sonu Nigam was attacked by a group of men after his concert in Chembur, Mumbai.

The group also referred to it as a "matter of shame."

ISRA issues a formal statement denouncing the assault

To express their disapproval of the assault on the Bollywood singer, they issued a formal statement. The declaration stated, "Knowing that our great artist Sonu Nigam and his colleagues were seriously attacked at a concert in Chembur last night severely incenses us. The fact that an idolized artist was mistreated is shameful. The entire nation's singers are alarmed and frightened by this tragedy."

The statement said, "Thus, we implore the Maharashtra Government and law enforcement agencies to take serious note regarding this and endeavor to guarantee that similar incidences do not recur with any Singers/Artists whatsoever."

Regarding the incident

The son of a local Legislator, Swapnil Phaterpekar, got into a fight with Sonu's security as he attempted to coerce the musician into taking a selfie with him.

The accused and his friends are seen pulling Sonu's teammates off the stage while heckling him in a video that has gone viral. The event resulted in injuries to Rabbani Khan, the son of Sonu's instructor Ghulam Mustafa Khan, as well as to his close friend and bodyguard.

The singer filed a formal complaint, and the Mumbai Police have already arrested the suspects. Suprada Phaterpekar, a Shiv Sena MLA and the sister of the perpetrator, did, however, apologized to Sonu Nigam after the attack.
