The Bombay High Court is likely to hear a petition from actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister, seeking to cancel a First Information Report (FIR) registered against them. A case has been filed against them over allegations of making objectionable comments on social media aimed at provoking communal tension.
Ms Ranaut and her sister, Rangoli Chandel, had been asked to appear before Mumbai Police yesterday and today over “objectionable comments” on social media.
The sisters were summoned twice before – on October 26 and 27 and on November 9 and 10 – but they did not appear before the police. They had said through their lawyer that they were busy with their brother’s wedding in Himachal Pradesh till November 15.
Mumbai Police then issued a third notice ordering Kangana Ranaut and Rangoli Chandel to appear for questioning on November 23 and 24 respectively.
