"None of my tweets have ever incited violence": Kangana Ranaut to Bombay High Court
Kangana Ranaut has also requested the Court to quash the FIR against her filled by the Mumbai Police for sedition.
None of my tweets have ever incited violence or caused any criminal act, Kangana Ranaut told the Bombay High Court on Monday, through her lawyer.
The actor has also requested the Court to quash the FIR against her filled by the Mumbai Police for sedition.
"There is absolute non-application of mind in the (Bandra) court's order. Even the sections invoked against me do not constitute any offense. None of my tweets have invoked any reactions from the public. They will not attract punishment as they were not followed by violence. What happened after the tweet? Was there any criminal act after my tweets?" Rizwan Siddique representing Kangana Ranaut told the High Court.
The actor and her sister Rangoli had challenged the order of the magistrate's court to initiate criminal proceedings against them and the subsequent summons issued by the Mumbai Police.
Siddique urged the High Court to quash the lower court's order as well as the FIR.
The High Court will continue hearing the arguments on February 26 and the interim protection from arrest granted to Ranaut and her sister Rangoli will continue till then.
The FIR was registered against Ranaut and Rangoli in October last year on the directions of the magistrate's court after Munawwar Ali Sayyad, a casting director, and fitness trainer filed a complaint citing some tweets and statements made allegedly by Ranaut and her sister.
