Kangana Ranaut unperturbed after court orders FIR against her

This probe has been ordered by the court hearing the plea by Munawwarali alias Sahil A Sayyed, a Bollywood casting director, said his lawyer Ravish F Zamindar.

POLICE REGISTERED an FIR against actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel at Bandra on Saturday afternoon, based on a private complaint filed before a metropolitan court. The FIR against Kangana was filed under the 'Sections 44 (Injury), 108 (Abettor), 153 (Wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 153 (A) (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) under the Indian Penal Code, 1860 (IPC)'.

As per ABP news, the complainants reportedly told the court that Kangana and Rangoli have been spreading "communal hatred" and dividing communities via tweets.

Among other things, Sayyed accused Kangana and Rangoli of defaming Bollywood, portraying people working in it in a bad light with claims of nepotism, drug addiction, communal bias, attempting to create a rift between artistes of different communities, insulting religions, calling them murderers etc on social media and through public statements. It said that the Bandra police station did not take cognizance of the offence, after which the complainant moved the court. Metropolitan magistrate said in the order on Friday that prima facie "cognisable offence" has been committed by the accused, and directed the police to initiate necessary action and investigation against the actor and her sister. The complaint referred to various tweets by Ranaut over the past few months, including a tweet where she referred to Mumbai as POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir). The actress has been extremely active on Twitter since she made her debut on social media. He said that an investigation was needed to ascertain the motive behind their tweets and to find out "who are the people backing such hatred to create communal tensions an sentiments against the government".
