Actor Kangana Ranaut was clicked today morning arriving at the Khar Police station in connection to the FIR filed against her. The actress was surrounded by bodyguards and cops as she got off the car. Known to carry saree with sheer ease on several occasions, she was seen in a floral white saree with a sleeveless blouse with a pearl necklace. She tied her hair in a low bun and wore strappy kitten heels, with a pair of sunglasses to beat the heat.
As per reports in the media, the actress was supposed to appear at Khar police station on Wednesday, but she visited the police station a day later. The actress had a police complaint filed against her after she commented on the farmers’ protest and compared it to the Khalistani movement. The Panga actress’ this remark had hurt the sentiments of the Sikh community. Hence, she was booked under Section 295-A of the Indian Penal Code. The FIR was booked against her in November 2021.
As reported in Hindustan Times, her lawyer Rizwan Sidiquee speaking about asking for another date for the actress’ appearance said, “Going by the spirit, aim and intent of the high court order, we requested the investigation officer for an earlier date and wanted to expedite process before the next court hearing. However, the investigation officer was not willing to accommodate us. He neither responded to my messages or calls nor did he revert on the letter which was served on him immediately after the order.”
He also added, “Now my client will appear before him on another earliest date as may be available. If the officer does not accommodate us, then we will leave it to the high court to decide on the matter on merits.” ALSO READ: Defamation Case: Javed Akhtar Wants Non-Bailable Warrant Against Kangana Ranaut; Lyricist’s Lawyer Says 'Actress Is ‘Deploying All Tactics To Delay The Case’
