Everyone and their grandmas know that Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut have sent legal notices to each other. Now, the 21 page notice filed by Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee reveals that if Hrithik makes their personal correspondence public (like he has threatened to do so in his notice), then the actor can be put behind bars for 10 years! Kangana’s lawyer has charged Hrithik under Section 67 of the Information Technology Act, which reads as –
Whoever publishes or transmits or causes to be published in the electronic form, any material which is lascivious or appeal to the prurient interest or if its effect is such as to tend to deprave and corrupt persons who are likely, having regard to all relevant circumstances, to read, see or hear the matter contained or embodied in it, shall be punished on first conviction with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to five years and with fine which may extend to one lakh rupees and in the event of a second or subsequent conviction with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years and also with fine which may extend to two lakh rupees.
Apart from this, Mr. Siddiquee has also incorporated Section 499 and 500 of Indian Penal Code, which is –
Defamation, and the subsequent punishment for the same is imprisonment up to 2 years or fine or both.
Section 506- Punishment of Criminal Intimidation to impute unchastity to a woman, which has a prison term up to 7 years or payment of a suitable fine, or both.
