Farhan Akhtar broke law by inviting people to rally: Senior IPS officer Sandeep Mittal


Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar took to Twitter to urge people to join him in protesting the Citizenship (Amendment) Act at August Kranti Maidan in the city, but the initiative might have got him into legal trouble.

Senior IPS officer Sandeep Mittal accused Farhan of breaking the law, according to a report in a leading website. Sharing an explainer video of Section 121 of the Indian Penal Code, Mittal tweeted, "You also need to know that you've committed an Offence u/s 121 of Indian Penal Code & it is not unintentional. @MumbaiPolice & @NIA_India are you listening. Please think of the Nation that is giving you everything in your Life. Understand the Law." 

Not just that, he also pointed out that his Twitter handle was partially hacked for question Farhan and his father Javed Akhtar.
