Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut tweeted a couple of days back that she is more scared of the Mumbai Police than mafia goons after, BJP MLA Ram Kadam batted for her safety.
Kadam in his letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray seeking protection for Kangana who is ready to expose the Bollywood-drug mafia nexus.
Reacting to the same, Ranaut wrote on Twitter, “Thank you for your concern sir, I am actually more scared of Mumbai police now than movie mafia goons, in Mumbai I would need security either from HP government or directly from the Centre, No Mumbai police please.”
Sanjay Raut slammed Ranaut's statements in Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece 'Saamana' and wrote that her 'treachery' was shameful, given the fact she makes a living in the maximum city and yet criticised the police force.
"We kindly request her not to come in Mumbai. This is nothing but insult to Mumbai police. The Home Ministry should take action over it,” Raut wrote.
Reacting to the same, Kangana took to Twitter stating, “Sanjay Raut Shiv Sena leader has given me an open threat and asked me not to come back to Mumbai, after Aazadi graffitis in Mumbai streets and now open threats, why Mumbai is feeling like Pakistan occupied Kashmir?”
Earlier, Ranaut shared screenshot of a netizen who shared a derogatory tweet against her. This involves pictures of street art in Mumbai by an artist named Tyler.
She went on to slam Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh of liking it and encouraging the same.
The actress wrote, “Liking derogatory tweets about people who are fighting against the murderers of Sushant, instead of condemning public teasing and bullying like this @CPMumbaiPolice is encouraging it, @MumbaiPolice has hit all time low ... SHAME!!”
In a subsequent tweet, Kangana tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating, “When @CPMumbaiPolice is openly intimidating me like this, encouraging bullying and crime against me, will I be safe in Mumbai ? Who is responsible for my safety? @PMOIndia.”
Mumbai Police took to their official Twitter account and rubbished the claims. They also said that they have asked cyber police to examine the screenshots.
