After Payal's tweets, advocate Ali Kashif Khan Deshmukh had the report lodged at Amboli police station. The report alleged that Payal's tweets were spreading hatred and hostility against the Muslim community.

Actress Payal Rohatgi seems to be stuck in difficulty. Mumbai's Andheri court has ordered an inquiry against the actress in the case of an objectionable tweet against a student of Jamia. The court found prima facie that Payal's tweets were not only female but insulting to the entire community. 

On Tuesday, the Metropolitan Magistrate Court of Mumbai ordered an inquiry into Payal's tweets after June 20. According to the Live Law website, the case is related to the arrest of MPhil student Safra Jargar in Delhi's Jamia Millia Islamia. After the arrest of Sapura in connection with the Delhi riots, Payal had commented on a journalist's tweet regarding the status of pregnant Sapura. Safura was later granted bail on humanitarian grounds.

After Payal's tweets, advocate Ali Kashif Khan Deshmukh had the report lodged at Amboli police station. The report alleged that Payal's tweets were spreading hatred and hostility against the Muslim community. Along with this, Payal was also publicly accused of harassment of Muslim women through his comments. 

On March 30, the court ordered Mumbai Police to investigate the case under section 202. The police have been asked to submit their report on 30 April.
