Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel have approached the Bombay High Court for the quashing of an FIR registered against them by Mumbai Police. The FIR was registered against the sister duo for allegedly trying to create hatred and communal tension through their social media posts.

The FIR in the Bandra police station was registered after a magistrate’s court directed the police administration to carry out a probe against Kangana Ranaut and her sister based on a complaint lodged against them.

Kangana Ranaut’s advocate Rizwan Siddiquee told a news agency that the sister duo have approached the Bombay High Court for quashing of the FIR registered at Bandra police station. The sisters have also requested the court to set aside the magistrate court’s order as well.

The actor and her sister have requested the court to stay the summons issued by the Bandra police to them for questioning. They have also requested the court to direct the police not to take any coercive action against them.

Kangana Ranaut summoned the third time

Notably, Kangana Ranaut and Rangoli Chandel were recently summoned for the third time by Mumbai police to appear before the Bandra police in the matter. While Kangana Ranaut was asked to remain present before the Bandra police station on November 23, her sister Rangoli was asked to remain present on November 24.

Earlier, summons were issued to the sisters two times. The first time, they responded saying there is a wedding function at home.

Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer, Rizwan Siddiquee, had sent a reply to the police station stating that the sisters were in Himachal Pradesh where they were busy with wedding preparations and on-going functions in their hometown of their younger brother.

Later, Mumbai police had again issued the second notice to Kangana Ranaut and Rangoli Chandel on November 3 and ordered them to appear before it on November 10. However, no response was received over this summon.

Court directed police to register FIR against Kangana Ranaut
