Rapper and Punjabi singer Honey Singh recorded his voice samples at Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), Sector 36, here, on Friday morning.
Following the directions of Punjab and Haryana high court, the samples were recorded in connection with his controversial song 'Main Hoon Balatkari'. Honey Singh had claimed that he had not sung the derogatory song and it was sung by someone else.
The song was also uploaded on Youtube following which the controversy erupted. The samples will now be sent to CFSL, Hyderabad, for further examination.
CFSL sources said Honey Singh was asked to sing and speak the lyrics of the song. Honey Singh recorded his voice in the presence of voice experts and the entire process took about two hours.
The court had also issued directions for staying further proceedings in the FIR registered against Honey Singh on May 15 till the next date of hearing i.e. November 15.
The directions came during the resumed hearing of a petition by the rap artiste, seeking quashing of the first information report (FIR) lodged against him at Nawanshahr.
The complaint by a non-government organisation Human Empowerment League of Punjab (HELP) was registered under Section 294 (obscene acts and songs to the annoyance of others in public place) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on May 15.
During the hearing of the case on Thursday, CFSL, Chandigarh, submitted that it was not possible to identify the voice of the person in the three CDs due to lack of sufficient characteristic speech samples for comparison.
