Preliminary inquiries have revealed that the song was recorded at Mussa village in Mansa district at the residence of Moose Wala, Bhargav said in a statement in Chandigarh.
A video clip of the song was uploaded on social media sites and it was found to be promoting violence and gun culture, he added.
Bhargav said Moose Wala's song "Pakhia pakhia pakhia, gun wich panj golia..." evidentially promotes violence and gun culture.
On Friday, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had expressed deep concerns over the propagation of violence and gun culture in Punjabi songs.
The chief minister had reiterated his government's firm commitment not to show any sort of complacency towards such singers who allure innocent youths into treading on the path of violence and hooliganism.
Notably, the Punjab and Haryana High Court had already directed the Director General of Police of Punjab, Haryana and Union Territory Chandigarh to ensure that no songs glorifying liquor, drugs and violence are played even in the live shows.
