Punjabi singer and lyricist Shree Brar, alias Pawandeep Singh has been arrested for allegedly glorifying violence and gun culture in one of his songs by the police on Tuesday.
The police will question him over the controversial lyrics relating to a recent murder in Patiala.
According to Senior Superintendent of Police Vikramjeet Duggal, Patiala, "The singer has come out with a song with provocative lyrics, promoting violence and anti-social acts to the extent of even providing shelter to criminals and gangsters and encouraging them for jailbreaks."
A case under Section 3 of The Police (Incitement to Disaffection) Act, 1922, and Sections 500, 501, 502, 505, 115, 116 and 120-B of the IPC has been registered.
SSP Vikramjeet Duggal said the song, 'Jaan' by Barbie Mann, featuring Brar, was released in November last year.
In its video, Brar is reportedly seen threatening police officers after being named in a murder case.
It shows him barging into the Nabha police station and rescuing a murder accused by pointing a weapon at the duty officer.
