Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut has got relief from Bombay High Court. The High Court has given interim protection against the arrest of Kangana and her sister Rangoli Chandel in the sedition case. Kangana filed a petition in the Bombay High Court against the police FIR in this case. However, the High Court has directed her to appear before the Mumbai Police on 8 January.
The Bandra Police was ordered to investigate by registering a report to the Bandra Police against Kangana and her sister on charges of spreading hatred among various communities through their posts on social media. The complaint was filed against Kangana and Rangoli by casting director Munawwar Ali, in which he also accused the film industry of maligning the entire industry.
Kangana and Rangoli filed a petition to quash the magistrate’s order and FIR issued on 17 October. Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui assured the High Court that the two sisters would appear before the Bandra Police on January 8 between 12 and 2 pm to get their statements recorded. The High Court will hear the case on January 11.

The special thing is that Justice S S Shinde objected to the imposition of section 124A and asked why the police impose this section in such a case? The judge also directed to organize a workshop for police officers, which should be told which section should be imposed.
After the High Court order, Kangana also thanked Justice Shinde.
Thank you Justice Shinde ji…. 🙏 https://t.co/8eKHiUUzzd
