The Mumbai Police has summoned Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel on 23-24 November over alleged comments posted on social media to spread communal tension, as per a report by ANI.

The case had been registered in the Bandra Police Station following orders from Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate court. The sisters were earlier summoned on 10 November but they had requested for time as there were weddings in the family.

On 29 October, a Mumbai court had ordered an inquiry against Kangana and Rangoli for allegedly posting derogatory tweets against Muslims.

The order came after one Ali Kashif Khan Deshmukh approached the court claiming that the Amboli police station did not take any action on a complaint filed by him against the sisters.

In the complaint Deshmukh alleged that Rangoli Chandel had posted objectionable comments against members of Tablighi Jamaat on her social media account on 15 April. Following this, her Twitter account was suspended.

Deshmukh had also alleged that Kangana Ranaut supported her sister. He claimed in his complaint that the actor had posted a short video on 18 April on social media platforms, calling Jamaatis terrorists. “Thus, both the accused posted hateful and derogatory statements against [the] Muslim community,” the complaint said.
