Their advocate Rizwan Siddiquee told PTI, “Kangana and Rangoli have filed a petition in the Bombay High Court for quashing of the FIR and the magistrates order.”
In the petition, he also said the court to stay the summons issued against the siblings asking them to appear before the police for interrogation, and also directed the police to not take any coercive steps against them.
Earlier, the Mumbai Police had called Kangana and Rangoli to be present on October 26 and 27 but they failed to appear. Later, the police had summoned the duo yet again for questioning on November 10 in link with the case.
