Sanjay Raut To Reply To Kangana Ranaut’s Petition In Bombay High Court
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s lawyer will answer questions on Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s petition against demolition of her house in Bombay High Court.
Hearing actor Kangana Ranaut’s petition against “the illegal demolition” at her Bandra bungalow on September 9 by the Shiv Sena-led BMC Justice SJ Kathawalla asked, “Are you saying that he (Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut) has not referred to ‘her’ when he said that ‘ladki’?” Raut’s counsel Pradeep Thorat will submit the MP’s reply to the HC bench of Justices Kathawalla and Riyaz Chagla on Tuesday (September 29). The bench on Monday (September 28) also asked Ranaut’s counsels Birendra Saraf and Rizwan Siddiquee to view Raut’s entire video interview.
At the last hearing, the HC had made Raut and H-West ward officer Bhagyawant Late parties to Ranaut’s petition. Saraf submitted that ‘the entirety of the case,’ the tweets, Raut’s interview and the haste and abuse of the law by BMC for “extraneous reasons” in denial of a fair chance to explain shows “malice in law and in fact.” He also submitted Ranaut’s tweets posted since August 30. In response, senior counsel for BMC pointed out that “malice in fact” has to have “extraordinarily high burden of proof.”
