With the Punjab and Haryana high court recently refusing to interfere in the case registered against Honey Singh by the Nawanshahr police, the rapper on Thursday moved an application for a fair inquiry.
The city police station had booked Honey under Section 294 (obscene acts and songs to the annoyance of others in public place) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on May 16 after an NGO, Human Empowerment League of Punjab (HELP), filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the high court.
On Thursday, the singer reached the office of senior superintendent of police (SSP) Dhanpreet Kaur, but she was not present. So, he submitted his application to superintendent of police (SP, detective) Gagan Ajit Singh.
Talking to mediapersons later, Honey reiterated that he had never sung the song, 'Main hoon balatkari' (I am a rapist).
He said he had complained to the YouTube authorities in 2012 about the song, but they were unable to find out who had sung it or uploaded its video.
The city police are yet to summon Honey for joining the investigation even after two months of registration of the case.
