Escalating the controversy over Kangana Ranaut’s PoK remarks, Shiv Sena IT cell on Tuesday lodged a police complaint against Kangana Ranaut seeking FIR against her under sedition charge.
The complaint has been registered at Shrinagar Police Station in Thane, news agency ANI reported.
Ranaut is in the eye of the storm over her recent tweet comparing Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. “Why is Mumbai feeling like Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir?” Ranaut had tweeted, drawing fierce backlash from various quarters.
Ranaut had recently said that she felt unsafe in Mumbai after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, evoking sharp reactions from Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena and party leader Sanjay Raut who in an article said that she must not come to Mumbai if she felt unsafe in the city.
Hitting back at him, Ranaut had tweeted: “Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena leader has given me an open threat and asked me not to come back to Mumbai. After Aazadi graffitis in Mumbai streets and now open threats, why Mumbai is feeling like Pakistan occupied Kashmir?”
