Chandigarh: Punjab Police on Friday booked singer-rapper Honey Singh for using obscene language in his songs, an official said.

A case was registered against the singer under provisions of Section 294 (singing, reciting or uttering any obscene song, ballad or words, in or near any public place) of the Indian Penal Code in Punjab's Nawanshahr town, a police official said.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Tuesday directed Punjab Police to book Honey Singh for obscenity in his songs. The singer-rapper has been courting controversies in the country for his songs based on sexual themes and innuendoes.
