Fatehgarh Sahib, December 9
An application under Section 156 (3) of the CrPC has been filed against actress Kangana Ranaut for posting a ‘defamatory tweet’ and mocking a woman protester on the Delhi border.
The application was filed in the court of Ilaqa Magistrate, Fatehgarh Sahib, by the former president of District Bar Association and advocate AS Dharni after the expiry of the legal notice that he served to the actress seeking an ‘unconditional apology’ for her remark.
In the application, he said necessary direction may be issued to SHO, Police Station, Bassi Pathana, to register a case against the actress and to take appropriate action in accordance with law after verifying the facts.
In the legal notice, Dharni has sought an apology from Kangana and has also mentioned that if she failed to do so, legal action will be initiated against her.
The actress had mistaken Mahinder Kaur, an elderly Sikh woman who participated in the farmers’ protests, for Bilkis Bano, one of the prominent faces of the Shaheen Bagh protests. The Tanu Weds Manu star had alleged that the woman was ‘available for Rs 100’ to participate in protests.
