A former Mumbai Police officer has sent a notice to Kangana Ranaut, seeking an apology for her remark against Mumbai Police.
NEW DELHI: Hours after the Centre approved Y+ level security for Kangana Ranaut, the Shiv Sena lodged police complaints against the actress in parts of Maharashtra.

The Shiv Sena IT Cell filed a complaint at the Shrinagar police station in Thane against the ‘Queen’ star, seeking FIR against her under 'charges of sedition for her Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) analogy for Mumbai'.



In Aurangabad as well, the Sena's city unit submitted a memorandum to the police seeking the registration of an offence against actress her for the same Mumbai remarks.

A Sena delegation submitted the memorandum to the CIDCO police station in Aurangabad.

News agency PTI quoted a CIDCO police station officer as saying: “We have received a letter from the city Shiv Sena."

Meanwhile, in Mumbai, a former IPS officer has sent a legal notice to the 33-year-old actress, and sought an apology as well. Retired Assistant Commissioner of Police, Pradeep Lonandkar, in his notice, has asked the National Award-winner to issue a public apology over her controversial tweets on Mumbai and its police. He has asked the actress to delete the derogatory and defamatory posts tweeted by her on September 1 and 2 comparing Mumbai to PoK and against the Mumbai police and its commissioner.


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.
