The matter is likely to come up for hearing on August 3. Ojha also named actress Kangana Ranaut and directors Madhur Bhandarkar and Vivek Agnihotri, who were among 61 high-profile personalities to counter the letter, as “witnesses”.

The letter further read, “We were shocked to learn from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) reports that there have been no less than 840 instances of atrocities against Dalits in the year 2016, and a definite decline in the percentage of convictions.”


The letter was responded to by other 61 personalities, including lyricist Prasoon Joshi, actor Kangana Ranaut, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar on Friday, who penned an open letter countering the claim of the previous lot. In the letter, the celebrities spoke against ‘selective outrage and false narratives’ shown by “49 self-styled guardians”.

The letter read, “Forty-nine self-styled “guardians” and “conscience keepers” of the nation and of democratic values have once again expressed selective concern and demonstrated clear political bias and motive."
