Mumbai Court Rejects Kangana Ranaut’s Plea To Transfer Extortion Case Against Javed Akhtar From Magistrate Court

Mumbai: A court of the chief metropolitan magistrate (CMM) here on Saturday rejected Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut’s plea seeking transfer of her “extortion” complaint against veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar out of the magistrate’s court in suburban Andheri. Ranaut had filed a counter complaint against Akhtar, who is pursuing a criminal defamation case against her.

In her complaint before the magistrate court, Ranaut had accused Akhtar of “extortion and criminal intimidation”.

The actor, through her lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee, had approached the CMM for transferring this case, saying she “lost faith” in the magistrate court.

In her petition, Ranaut had claimed that the court of the metropolitan magistrate had indirectly threatened her of issuing a warrant if she failed to appear before it in a bailable offence.
