HighlightsThe summons was issued against Kangana on a complaint lodged at the Bandra police station in Mumbai.
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has been busy with her brother’s wedding for the past few days.

Accordingly, Kangana has been summoned to appear for questioning on November 23 while Rangoli has been summoned for questioning on November 24.

What is the case
The summons was issued on a complaint lodged against Kangana at the Bandra police station in Mumbai. Mumbai Police had on October 17 lodged an FIR against Kangana and her sister Rangoli Chandel following a local court order. Kangana and her sister are accused of hurting religious feelings through posts on social media.
A Mumbai court has ordered Mumbai police to file a complaint against Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel for allegedly trying to create religious tensions. The court passed the order directing the police to investigate the complaint of director Munawwar Ali Syed.
A series of offensive tweets
Two sadhus were killed by a mob in Gadchinchale village in Palghar district. Kangana then tweeted offensively. She had also tweeted referring to ‘Babar Sena’ when the Mumbai Municipal Corporation broke the encroachment on Kangana’s bungalow. Putting a finger on all this, the petitioner had demanded action. Meanwhile, Kangana had also criticized the court order after the case was filed. Kangana had targeted the Thackeray government in Maharashtra, tweeting, “Pappu Sena in Maharashtra sees nothing but me.”
