An FIR was registered against Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel (Rangoli Chandel) under various sections including 124 A at Mumbai’s Bandra Police Station. A Mumbai court had asked the police on Saturday to investigate the complaint filed against actress Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel for allegedly trying to create communal tension.
The order was issued by Bandra’s Metropolitan Magistrate Jaydev Y. Ghule on Friday. Casting director Sahil Ashrafali Syed’s lawyer Ravish Zamindar said that his client had filed a complaint in the court seeking registration of an FIR against the actress and her sister under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The complainant alleged that the actress has been defaming Bollywood by Kangana Ranaut through her tweets and television interviews for the last two months. In the complaint, he said that Ranaut has made ‘very objectionable’ comments in the tweet, which hurt not only his feelings but also that of many other artists.
Syed alleged that Ranaut is trying to divide the artists on a communal basis. He said, ‘His sister also made objectionable comments on social media to spread communal tension between the two religious groups.’
Looking at the documents in the record and the counsel’s plea, the court found that the actress had committed a ‘cognizable offence’. The court directed the concerned police station to conduct an investigation and initiate necessary action against the actress and her sister under the relevant provisions of the Criminal Penal Procedure Code (CRPC). The court said, “The entire allegations are based on comments made in electronic media such as Twitter and interviews and a thorough investigation by an expert is required.”
