HC grants bail to Kangana Ranaut in Javed Akthar defamation case
Javed Akthar had filed a defamation case against Kangana Ranaut after her allegations about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Javed Akthar had filed a defamation case against actor Kangana Ranaut a few months back. But Kangana failed to appear or respond to the summons by the magistrate court. This led to the court issuing a bailable warrant on the actress.
“For willful absence of accused (Ranaut) without any justified reasons, despite service of summons, issue a bailable warrant of ₹1,000 against accused Kangana Ranaut,” the Andhra metropolitan court stated.
In good news for the actor, the High Court of Karnataka has quashed the FIR against her. On Thursday, the actress appeared before the court and therefore, bail was granted to her. The HC also set aside FIR on another set of tweets made by the actor.
The tweets were against people who were opposing the new farm laws. During the hearing, Justice Sandesh asked Kangana’s advocate, “Who gave you the power to make such allegations? What would you have done if someone uttered the same words against you?”
Javed Akthar filed the case after a TV interview of Kangana where she talked about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
