Kangana Ranaut, Sister Appear Before Mumbai Police In Sedition Case

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut and her sister, Rangoli Chandel, reached Bandra police station in the city on Friday to record their statements in a sedition case filed against them.

The Bombay High Court, which had granted the two sisters interim protection from arrest, asked them to appear before Mumbai police on Friday.

The Bandra police had registered the case against Kangana and her sister in October last year following a complaint lodged against them for allegedly trying to create hatred and communal tension through their posts on social media.

A division bench of Bombay High Court had also questioned police for invoking the sedition charge in the case, and said it was of the prima facie opinion that Section 124A (sedition) of the IPC was wrongly invoked.

“If someone does not fall in line with the government, then can sedition charges be invoked,” the court had asked, NDTV reported.
