After Accusing Cops Of ‘Ill-Treatment’, Ranas Take About-Turn In Court

Mumbai: Mumbai Police Commissioner Sanjay Pandey shared a video of MP Navneet Rana and MLA Ravi Rana sipping tea at police station, to counter the ill-treatment remarks of the couple. After this, the couple took an about-turn in court. 

MP Navneet Rana had also written to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla. In the letter she had alleged that at Khar Police Station, she and her husband were treated worse than animal. But when the court asked the couple if they had any complaints against the police, they denied.

“I submit that the treatment meted out to me in the lock up of the Khar Police Station was worse than how animals are treated,” Navneet Rana had said.

She also demanded that strict action should be taken against the Commissioner, Mumbai Police, concerned Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), concerned Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) and the police staff.

Sanjay Pandey, the Mumbai Commissioner of Police, shared a video of the MP Navneet Rana and her MLA husband Ravi Rana drinking tea at the Khar Police Station on Tuesday. “Do we say anything else?” he asked in the caption of the video.

The Rana couple’s lawyer, Rizwan Merchant, provided a clarification after Pandey tweeted the video on Tuesday afternoon, claiming the couple’s accusation of “ill-treatment” was connected to the Santacruz police station, not the Khar police station, where they were brought past Saturday midnight.

For their insistence on chanting Hanuman Chalisa outside chief minister Uddhav Thackeray’s house to remind the Shiv Sena leader of his Hindutva roots, the couple was arrested on Saturday evening on allegations of inciting enmity and sedition, among other things. Later, they were charged with resisting arrest and obstructing public servants by the police.

Navneet Rana is presently lodged in Byculla women’s prison while her husband is lodged at the Taloja jail in Navi Mumbai.
