The Home Ministry is said to have approved the request of the Himachal Pradesh government to provide security to the Bollywood actress
By Our Correspondent
A war of words had erupted between actor Kangana Ranaut and Shiv Sena Member of Parliament Sanjay Raut over the former’s controversial tweet comparing the situation in Maharasthra to that of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. Raut had used some unsavoury words whilst slamming the actress, which Ranaut equated to a direct threat from the ruling state government. In a bid to avert any untoward incident, the Union Home Ministry has approved the Himachal Pradesh government’s request to issue Y category security to the actress.
The actress thanked Union Home Minister Amit Shah for respecting the integrity of a woman
“ये प्रमाण है की अब किसी देशभक्त आवाज़ को कोई फ़ासीवादी नहीं कुचल सकेगा,मैं @AmitShahजी की आभारी हूँ वो चाहते तो हालातों के चलते मुझे कुछ दिन बाद मुंबई जाने की सलाह देते मगर उन्होंने भारत की एक बेटी के वचनों का मान रखा, हमारे स्वाभिमान और आत्मसम्मान की लाज रखी, जय हिंद,” tweeted Ranaut.
(From hereon a patriot’s voice will not be suppressed by any fascist forces. I am indebted to Amit Shah ji . Given the situation, he could have advised me to return to Mumbai after few days, but he has respected the promises of India’s daughter, he respected my integrity and self respect Jai Hind).
A Y category security would see Ranaut being accompanied by 11 security personnel, which would include one or two commandos.
Ranaut has been critical of the Maharashtra coalition government [Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress] and the state police for the way it handled the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. She has regularly slammed the Mumbai police for their shoddy probe. The case was eventually transferred to the CBI with the Narcotics Control Bureau now probing the alleged drug angle in the case. Rajput’s girl friend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and certain staff members of Rajput are facing the heat. Rhea’s brother Showik and Rajput house manager Samuel Miranda have already been arrested by the NCB over drug procuring and peddling charges.
