New Delhi (ILNS): The Bombay High Court today granted interim protection to Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel in the case filed by the Mumbai Police under sedition and other charges.

The court has, however, directed them to appear before Mumbai Police on January 8. The two sisters through their advocate Rizwan Siddiquee, assured the court that they shall appear before the Bandra police in Mumbai on January 8 from 12 noon to 2 pm for recording of their statements.

The two-judge bench of Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik was hearing a petition from actor Kangana and her sister, seeking to cancel a First Information Report (FIR) registered against them.

The bench also observed that there is a trend of adding the offence of sedition under Section 124A, Indian Penal Code to complaints registered against those speaking against a Government.

Justice SS Shinde said: “Why is the sedition section invoked? Why are we treating citizens of our country like this?” The court asked the Chief Public Prosecutor Deepak Thakre to explain to the court the need to invoke Section 124A of the IPC.

The court has adjourned the hearing of the plea to January 11, 2021 when it will be heard on merits.
