The court has sought a progress report on the ongoing investigation against Kangana Ranaut on the allegations of inflammatory posts on social media. A Mumbai magistrate court on Friday ordered the police to submit a report investigating the case. In October, on the complaint of a lawyer, the court ordered the police to investigate against Kangana and report by December 5. The police could not file the report within the stipulated time. The deadline was then extended to 5 January by the court. After this, the court once again gave time till 5 February, but still the police has failed to submit the report.
Advocate Ali Asif Khan Deshmukh, who has filed a complaint against Kangana Ranaut, said, “Even after increasing the deadline many times, the police has failed to file a report. I had asked the court to initiate action directly against the accused. In such a situation, the police has now asked the progress report of the investigation. At present, investigation is going on against Kangana Ranaut under section 202 of CrPC. Under this, the court has ordered the police to investigate the case and tell if prima facie a case is made against Kangana or not.
The court has fixed March 4 for next hearing. The complaint said that Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel had made objectionable tweets targeting a community in April last year. His account was also suspended on Twitter. Kangana Ranaut released a video supporting this post. In this video, Kangana Ranaut called a particular community a terrorist. Complaining about this, Asif Khan Deshmukh had demanded from the court that an investigation should be taken against the two by the police and action should be taken.
