A few days ago there were reports suggesting that Mumbai Police's cyber crime police station in Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), Mumbai issued summons to Kangana, asking her to visit them and record her statement. They also summoned her sister Rangoli in the matter since she was privy to the content of the e-mails exchanged between Kangana and the alleged impostor (posing as Hrithik Roshan). The notice read that the duo visit the police station within seven days.

    A few days ago there were reports suggesting that Mumbai Police's cyber crime police station in Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) has issued summons to Kangana, asking her to visit them and record her statement. They also summoned her sister Rangoli in the matter since she was privy to the content of the e-mails exchanged between Kangana and the alleged impostor (posing as Hrithik Roshan). The notice demanded the duo to visit the police station within seven days.

    The move led to a strict reaction by the National Award winning actress’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee. Kangana’s publicist had issued a statement of the lawyer that read - No Police Officer can summon my client Ms. Kangana Ranaut or her sister Ms. Rangoli 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.

    According to the latest developments, the cyber cell has withdrawn its demand of requiring Kangana and her sister's personal appearance at the police station. Reacting to the same, Siddiquee says, “The police officer now having partly understood the provisions of law have duly withdrawn the demand of my clients' presence at their police station, and have instead, in a polite manner, requested my clients to communicate to them the date, time and place as per their convenience so as to enable the concerned officer to visit them and record their statement.”

    He further adds, “My client Ms. Kangana Ranaut who has been a victim as per Mr. Hrithik Roshan's claim can only record her statement as a witness (victim) in the said matter, provided that the concerned police officer further follows the provisions of law, and duly hands over the copies of the F.I.R. and other related documents as demanded by us under the provisions of Section 76 of Indian Evidence Act 1872. I have sufficiently educated the concerned officer of my client's rights as has been provided by the Statute, as well as her duties as a Police Officer. We will now wait to see when would the concerned officer give us the required documents as has been legally demanded by me for and on behalf of my clients in exercise of their legal rights.”
