On Tuesday, micro-blogging site Twitter suspended his account after he posted a series of "offensive tweets", especially against women.
The singer had received flak on the social media site for a series of inflammatory tweets against journalist Swati Chaturvedi, who had registered a police complaint against him previous year in July.
"Twitter is a platform for anti-nationals, anti-Indian Army, anti-Modi, anti-Hindu and for terrorist supporters". "I have nothing against Twitter, it's a Game Changer".
In August a year ago, it was revealed that Abhijeet Bhattacharya was arrested by the police the previous month and he got his phone confiscated for abusing journalist and writer Swati Chaturvedi on Twitter.

"Have seen love pouring in from most quarters for my balanced approach; and unreasonable, illogical, ruthless, profanities being hurled from other". He claims that Twitter is like porn, shown in Theaters. How is it all so one-sided? "Why can't there be a Sensible discussion?"(sic), he tweeted.
Shehla Rashid had tweeted a Hindustan Times article which was talking about the allegations of sex scandals involving BJP leaders.

"I don't belong to a place whr (where) sm (some) Pseudo Intellectuals actually turn a Blind Eye to d Unprecedented slap I gave 2 d Fatva proclaimers on me", he tweeted.
