Kangana moves court to quash Mumbai Police’s FIR against her

Kangana Ranaut

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel have filed a petition in the Bombay High Court, seeking to quash an FIR registered against them by Mumbai Police.

The FIR was filed against them for “trying to create hatred and communal tension” through their posts on social media.

The FIR, under sedition charges, was registered pursuant to orders passed by the Bandra magistrates court directing the police to carry out an inquiry against Ranaut and her sister following a complaint lodged against them.

The Mumbai Police last week summoned Ranaut and her sister for the third time to record their statements on 23 and 24 November for allegedly promoting enmity between two communities.

The police have filed the FIR against Ranaut and Rangoli under IPC sections 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race), 295-A (deliberate acts hurting religious sentiments) and 124-A (sedition), 34 (common intention).
