“I told him about the unfair treatment of me. I hope that justice will be restored to me, and the faith of all citizens, including young girls, in the system will be restored. I am fortunate that the governor listened to me, as did his own daughter.” Ms Ranaut told ANI news agency after the meeting.

Ms Ranaut, who actively supports Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said she has the necessary permits.
The High Court noted that the demolition of the building occurred while the actor was out of state – in Himachal Pradesh – and only gave 24 hours to respond.
