Yo Yo Honey Singh, a popular rapper and musician, has been ordered by a district court in Maharashtra’s Nagpur district to appear before a local police station to produce a voice sample in connection with a case filed against him. Anandpal Singh Jabbal filed a complaint against him for singing and posting a foul song on social media. However, no specific music has been named.
The Panchpaoli police allegedly filed a case against the rapper under section 292 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Information Technology Act (ITA) (selling, distribution of obscene content). Honey Singh has been ordered to appear before the cops at Nagpur’s Panchpaoli police station between February 4 and 11 by District and Additional Sessions Judge S A S M Ali.
The court issued the ruling after the artist requested permission to fly to Dubai. Honey was given permission to travel overseas between January 29 and February 4 by the court, but only after he appeared at the police station.
The investigating officer objected to Singh’s plea, stating that the singer was expected to appear at the police station on January 25, but had neglected to do so and had alerted the police via email. The investigating officer indicated that the singer was not cooperating with the probe, and if he is permitted to travel, he may not remain present before the court.
