A Khar police station official said a complaint was received from the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) and they are looking into it.

He said a delegation led by Manjinder Singh Sirsa, a Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader and president of the DSGMC, submitted the complaint against Ranaut. Advertisement

In the complaint, the DSGMC mentioned that Ranaut had intentionally and deliberately portrayed the farmers' protest (Kisan Morcha) as a Khalistani movement and also dubbed the Sikh community as Khalistani terrorists. It claimed that she had recalled the massacre and genocide that happened during 1984 and earlier, as a planned and calculated move on part of then prime minister Indira Gandhi, the official said quoting the complaint.

Ranaut has used very derogatory and insulting language against the Sikh community as much as she has said that they were crushed under her (Indira Gandhi's) shoes. This act on her part is most degrading, disrespectful and contemptuous, which has hurt the sentiments of the Sikh community across the world, the official said.

The DSGMC demanded that an FIR be registered against Ranaut under section 295A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) and other appropriate sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) "so that she may not be able to venture such type of exercise in future and spread her malicious and vicious propaganda all over the world to malign the image of the Sikh community", it said.

The delegation also met Additional Commissioner of Police (west) Sandip Karnik.

Meanwhile, Mumbai police beefed security in front of the controversial actor's residence in the city.
