The notice said the allegations levelled by Ranaut that the city commissioner of police was "intimidating" her and "encouraging social bullying" against her are completely false, frivolous, baseless and unsubstantiated, and that she should issue an apology to the Mumbai Police Commissioner and the Mumbai police.
The Sena, a former ally of the National Democratic Alliance at the Centre, has said that Ranaut's remarks have hurt the sentiments of 13 crore Maharashtrians and sought action against her besides an apology.
