New Delhi (ILNS): The Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) at Tumkur, Karnataka today directed the Kyathasandra Police to register an FIR against Actor Kangana Ranaut for her tweets against the farmers’ protest.
The order was passed by Judge Vinod Balnaik which was reserved on October 5.
The FIR has been lodged for the offenses under Sections 153A, 504, 108 of the Indian Penal Code for the Actors tweet of September 21 which says “People who spread misinformation and rumors about CAA that caused riots are the same people who are now spreading misinformation about Farmer’s bill and causing terror in the nation, they are Terrorists. You very well know what I said but simply like to spread misinformation.”
The complainant, Advocate Ramesh Naik, has submitted: This posting on twitter account of the accused posted by her may lead to a collision between the people of the different group believe in a different ideology. It seems that the government authorities have turned a blind eye to the same and do not have any established measures or rules and guidelines to control and regulate the same. On the bare perusal of all these content, it is more than evident that the government is least bothered and as usual, waiting for some dangerous consequences to happen before taking some appropriate actions.”
The complainant urging the Court to take cognizance of the offense further submitted that “All those who are responsible for allowing this content to be posted on the social media and those who are promoting such material to malice and defame the country’s backbone, with intention to spread the violence and destabilize the country are liable to be prosecuted and punished under these Sections 44,108,153,153A and 504 of the Indian Penal Code”.
