According to reports, the incidents of the singer in collusion with his brother dropping off people illegally overseas during his concerts came to the surface in 2003 when a complaint was filed by Bakshish Singh.

It so happened that back in 2003, the Patiala police had filed a case against the Punjabi pop sensation and his brother on the basis of allegedly taking money from a handful of people to the tune of nearly 1 crore in the pretext of taking them overseas. They disguised the illegal immigrants as troupe members, and then, "dropped them off" there, says a report by News18. After the case was registered, several others had also come forward with similar complaints against the two brothers. It was also alleged that the Mehndi brothers took two dance groups to the US in 1998 and 1999, and illegally "dropped off" 10 people posing as troupe members. In 1998, he took a group of people as part of a trip to San Francisco with an Indian actress. The complainants alleged that the brothers had taken "passage money" from them to help them migrate to the USA "illegally", but had failed to do so. The court upheld that there was enough evidence to prosecute them. Documents, including the case files of those who had paid passage money, were found.
