Mumbai police has again issued summon to Kangana Ranaut and Rangoli Chandel. The actress and her sister have been asked to appear before the Bandra police on November 23 and 24 over their “objectionable comments on social media”. A case was filed against the actress and her sister for spreading communal tension via their social media posts. This is the third time Kangana and Rangoli have been summoned by Mumbai police in this case.

Sharing an update on the case, ANI tweeted, “Kangana Ranaut and Rangoli Chandel summoned by Police, asking them to appear before Bandra Police on 23-24 Nov over “objectionable comments on social media to spread communal tension between 2 groups.” Case registered following Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate court order.”

A case was filed against the ‘Queen‘ actress in Bandra Police station in October by casting director and fitness trainer Munnawar Ali Sayyed. He had accused the actress of making “hateful” and “derogatory” statements against a particular community via her social media posts.

The case was filed against Ranaut sisters under Section 124 A (sedition), 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, prejudicial to maintenance of harmony) and 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings by insulting its religion) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Previously, Mumbai police had summoned Kangana on  26- 27th October and then on November 10. Apparently, Kangana had informed the police that she will be busy with her brother Aksht’s wedding and that she will be available after November 15. Aksht got married on November 12.

According to a PTI report, the FIR states that the Ranaut sisters tried to “malign the Indian Constitution and image of the Maharashtra government, hurt sentiments of Muslims and tried to create division between Hindus and Muslims,” through their posts on Twitter
