BJP MPs seek NHRC probe in Kangana case
Terming the recent assault of a retired Navy officer and demolition of Kangana Ranaut’s office in Mumbai as “state-sponsored violence”,
Three BJP MPs on Wednesday approached the NHRC urging it to conduct an inquiry and take action against the Uddhav Thackeray government.
They also said vindictive action was taken against Ranaut who had become vocal against the government.
“A retired Navy officer was beaten up by members of Shiv Sena.... Attacks on the citizens over their exercise of rights such as freedom of speech to criticise the state government end up into state sponsored violence,” Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, Vikas Mahatme and Bhagwat Karad stated.
