The High Court, in July last year, had directed the Director Generals of Police in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh to make sure that songs glorifying liquor, wine, drugs and violence are not played at events and live shows. The division Bench had observed that glorification of violence, wine, drugs and vulgar songs have given rise to culture of gangsters. The songs affect children of impressionable age, it added.
