Kangana Ranaut, Sister To Appear Before Mumbai Police After Bombay HC Refuses To Cancel The Case

In a case filed against them over provocative social media posts, actress Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel will appear before the Mumbai police on January 8. 

In a case filed against them over provocative social media posts, actress Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel will appear before the Mumbai police on January 8.

The Bombay High Court did not cancel the case against the sisters, as they had requested. They have skipped three summons to appear before the police.

The Bombay HC refused to accept Kangana Ranaut and her sister’s argument that they were busy with a wedding in the family.

“We could not come because a wedding was on. That is why she has sent the statements,” their lawyer argued.

“Whatever, you have to honour the summons,” replied the judges.

“What we propose to do is, we will grant you time. We will grant the petitioners (Kangana and her sister) protection from arrest and let them appear before police when they come in January,” the court said.

The Mumbai police lawyer responded saying: “Let them come ASAP if they want protection. What is so special about them that they should wait till January?”

In a First Information Report by the police, the sisters have been accused of making objectionable comments on social media aimed at provoking communal tension.

Both Kangana and Rangoli missed a third summons to appear before Mumbai Police yesterday and today.
