Slamming the Punjab government for not taking any action against the rapper-singer, the court ordered the state government to take immediate action against Singh.
Heads hung in shame after hearing his songs, observed the court. The division bench comprised of acting chief justice Jasbir Singh and justice R K Jain.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court summoned Singh to respond to the allegations hurled against him by one Uttar Pradesh IPS officer Amitabh Thakur.
The petitioner filed FIR against Singh accusing him for singing song full of "obscene" and anti-women remarks.
The IPS officer was quoted as saying, "The lyrics of his songs are vulgar and obscene. One song is called 'Mai hoon balatkari (I'm rapist)'. Only online petitions and protests will not help in convicting Honey Singh. An FIR will."
Earlier concert of Honey Singh on New Year eve in a hotel in Gurgaon was cancelled following an online protest against his songs.
Lucknow police sources informed that FIR against the singer was lodged in Gomti Nagar police station under sections 292, 293 and 294 of the IPC which are related to obscenity offences.
