Kangana
Ranaut
and
Javed
Akhtar’s
legal
battle
refuses
to
settle
down.
Yesterday
(April
05,
2021),
a
sessions
court
in
Dindoshi
in
Mumbai
dismissed
an
application
filed
by
the

Queen

actress
challenging
the
proceedings
initiated
against
her
by
a
magistrate
court
in
connection
with
a
defamation
complaint
lodged
by
the
veteran
lyricist.

For
the
unversed,
last
year,
Akhtar
had
filed
a
defamation
case
against
Kangana
in
a
Mumbai
court,
for
making
baseless
allegations
against
him
in
comments
made
to
the
media
while
speaking
about
the
death
of
actor
Sushant
Singh
Rajput.
In
the
complaint,
Javed
had
alleged
that
the

Rangoon

actress’
baseless
comments
had
caused
damage
to
his
reputation.

The
sessions
court
in
Dindoshi
had
on
April
3,
reserved
its
order
on
the
application
filed
by
Ranaut.

In
her
application,
Ranaut
had
challenged
the
issuance
of
the
process
and
the
legality
and
validity
of
the
February
1,
2021
order
passed
by
the
magistrate,
and
the
subsequent
action
of
issuing
a
bailable
warrant
against
her
for
failing
to
appear
before
the
court.

According
to
a
report
by
PTI,
“Ranaut’s
advocate
Rizwan
Siddiquee
had
argued
in
the
sessions
court
that
as
per
provisions
of
section
200
of
the
Code
of
Criminal
Procedure
(CrPC),
a
magistrate
has
to
first
examine
and
record
the
statements
of
the
complainant
and
the
witnesses
before
issuance
of
notice
or
proceedings
in
criminal
complaints.”

Siddiquee
further
claimed
that
since
the
magistrate
court
had
not
recorded
the
statements
of
the
witnesses,
it
had
invalidated
the
procedure.
Kangana,
on
the
other
hand,
sought
the
sessions
court
to
quash
the
proceedings
initiated
against
her.

However,
Javed
Akhtar’s
advocate
Jay
Bharadwaj
opposed
the
application
and
submitted
that
the
order
passed
by
the
magistrate
did
not
warrant
interference.
