Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut hit out at Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh for allegedly liking a derogatory tweet against her, accusing him of ‘encouraging public teasing and bullying’ of those who were fighting for Sushant Singh Rajput. Tagging the official Twitter handle of the Prime Minister’s Office in one of her tweets, she also raised questions on her safety.
Taking to Twitter and sharing screenshots which showed the senior officer liking the said tweet, Kangana wrote, “Liking derogatory tweets about people who are fighting against the murderers of Sushant, instead of condemning public teasing and bullying like this @CPMumbaiPolice is encouraging it, @MumbaiPolice has hit all time low ... SHAME !!”
“When @CPMumbaiPolice is openly intimidating me like this, encouraging bullying and crime against me, will I be safe in Mumbai ? Who is responsible for my safety? @PMOIndia,” she added.
The Mumbai police however denied the accusations stating that the commissioner had never liked such a tweet. An action has also been initiated to check the authenticity of the screenshots shared by Kangana. “This tweet has never been liked by @CPMumbaiPolice- the cyber police station has been asked to examine the screenshot,” said the Mumbai police.
Responding to their claim, she further tweeted, “You are a big sham in the name of police force, don’t you forget not just me all the people tagged got notifications of @CPMumbaiPolice liking the derogatory tweet, trying to prove victim a criminal seems your old dhandha, don’t you dare to lie @MumbaiPolice, don’t you dare.”
