According to reports, Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer has stated that neither the actress nor her sister can be summoned to any police station as per provisions of the law. This development comes after the Mumbai police’s cyber crime police station summoned Kangana and her sister, following Hrithik Roshan’s FIR. The summons said that both have to appear before the police and record their statements within a week. However, according to IANS, Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee states:

No police officer can summon my client or her sister to any police station to record their statement as a witness under Section 160 of CRPC. The witness summons sent to my client and her sister by the police officer is patently illegal, as no woman can ever be called to the police station to record their statements as per the provisions of law.

Kangana’s lawyer further claims that while the actress is ready to cooperate with the officers regarding the investigation, things were started by Hrithik and he should come forward and end it in a proper manner.
