After divorce in India , no relation of husband and wife exists. Thus, subsequent petition is baseless. Courts at Singapore recognise Decrees passed by Indian courts. The alleged matter may be contested appropriately.

You have not mentioned as to where did the marriage took place,assuming it took place in Tamil Nadu,and the decree was granted in favor of the wife ,By which means she is recovering dowry,For any filling of case India would be the jurisdiction.No case can be filed in Singapore unless the marriage was solemnized there.
