Kangana Ranaut moves HC to quash proceedings in defamation case

Jul 21, 2021 23:05 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Actor Kangana Ranaut has moved the Bombay High Court, seeking to quash all proceedings initiated by a city magistrate on a criminal defamation complaint filed against her by lyricist Javed Akhtar.

Ranaut filed an appeal before the court & said that the Andheri metropolitan magistrate's court initiated proceedings against her by relying only on the police's report and did not examine witnesses independently.

Akhtar filed a criminal complaint against Ranaut in November 2020 before the magistrate for allegedly making defamatory and baseless comments against him in television interviews.

The court initiated criminal proceedings against Ranaut and issued a summons to her in February 2021 after Juhu Police told the court that the offence was made.
