Kangana Ranaut has reportedly moved the Bombay High Court to quash the case filed by Javed Akhtar with regards to defamation.
The actress has said in the appeal, as reported by E Times, that the investigation was done just by the police report and without the interrogation of witnesses. The plea said, “The metropolitan magistrate did not use his own powers to conduct an inquiry but instead blatantly used the police machinery to collect the signed witness statements…which is completely unheard of”.
“It was likely that the witnesses were influenced by the police and the magistrate should have recorded evidence of witnesses under oath to “establish if an actual case was made out”, continued the plea.
The case was filed by Akhtar back in November 2020.
