Bandra magistrate court has ordered registration of an FIR against actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel allegedly for creating communal tension through their tweets and interviews.
The complainant had accused Kangana of creating a social divide between Hindu and Muslim artists via her tweets and interviews to channels.
Earlier this week, the actor was booked by Karnataka police over her tweet allegedly targeting farmers protesting against contentious central farm laws. The case was registered under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections, including 108 ?(abetment), wanton vilifiation upon a community (153A) and intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace (504).
Last week, a Tumkuru court had directed the local Kyatasandra police station to book Kangana Ranaut for her tweet on farmers. The ruling came after a complaint was lodged by advocate L. Ramesh Naik last month.
On September 21, Kangana had tweeted, “People who spread misinformation and rumours about CAA that caused riots are the same people who are now spreading misinformation about farmers’ bills and causing terror in the nation, they are terrorists.”
Alleging that the tweet amounted to causing provocation, hurt, enmity between groups and intentional insult, Naik had filed the complaint against the actor in the Tumkur court on September 28 after the Tumkuru police refused to entertain his complaint.
