Mumbai: Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan’s legal battle seems to be getting murkier with each passing day. Now after many shocking claims, Kangana Ranaut has been summoned by the Mumbai police to record her statement.
Mumbai Police's cyber cell has sent a legal notice to Kangana Ranaut, requesting her to appear as a witness in the e-mail 'impostor' case within 48 hours to record her statement or be liable to face prosecution.
Once she receives the summons, Kangana will have two days to specify the date, time and place convenient to her so that police can conduct an interview.
Since her sister Rangoli was also aware of the incident, she too may have to record her statement.
According to a daily, a complaint has been filed under section 419 IPC 66C, 66D of IT Act vide CR No. 78/16 and the actress has been summoned to record her statement as it is crucial for the investigation to analyze the digital documents. Failure to respond to the summons shall attract liability under section 174 of IPC (Non-attendance in obedience to an order from public servant).
The Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut spat got uglier with the actress approaching the Commissioner of Police on Thursday, seeking the actor's arrest for allegedly circulating her personal photographs and e-mails to the media and "willfully outraging" her modesty.
It all began when Hrithik, in February sent a notice to Kangana asking her to hold a press conference and tender an apology for referring to him as a 'silly ex'. Kangana, in turn, had responded with a 21-page notice, charging Hrithik with intimidation and threat.
The legal fight between the two stars, who worked together in 'Kites' and 'Krrish 3', has been grabbing headlines for some time now. Hrithik's side claims that he never had a relationship with the actress.
The actor had accused the ‘Queen’ star of sending up to 50 e-mails a day, some of them explicit in nature, whereas Kangana has alleged that he had hacked into her email account to delete mails that could have complicated his divorce proceedings with his then wife Suzanne Khan.
Kangana, however, has charged the actor of a clumsy attempt to cover up their relationship.
The actress had said she was not "some dim-witted teenager who has been smitten and that whatever happened between the two of them was with full consent of both parties."
However, Kangana Ranaut's lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee states that his client has not received any fresh letter from the cops. So far they have only received three letters to which they replied. According to her lawyer, Kangana hasn't received any letter from the cops, requesting her to specify date, place and time for an interview....
