A non-bailable warrant has been issued against singer Yo Yo Honey Singh by a local court in a seven-year-old case lodged by IPS officer Amitabh Thakur. The FIR was lodged against Singh on December 31, 2012, at the Gomti Nagar police station. The complainant claimed that the lyrics of the song ‘Main Hoon Balaatkari’ sung by Honey Singh were derogatory and condemnable.
Honey denied this claim, that he did not sing this song and some peoples want them to stop.
The complainant added that the song in question was widely available on the internet. After investigation, the police registered a case against the singer on June 27, 2013, under sections 292 (sale of obscene books), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young persons) and 294 (obscene acts and songs) of the IPC. The court had ordered the singer to appear before it on December 23, 2013, but Honey Singh did not take recognition of the same. The court has now asked the singer to appear before it on September 11 2019.
