Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee states that "I have been receiving calls from media persons since last 2 hours. They have been told by Hrithik Roshan's PR team that Police is coming to meet Kangana today. That's a blatant lie as no one is visiting Kangana, as has been communicated by Hrithik's team. My client is not a coward to disappear suddenly. We have always been handling the matter legally and without any fear."

Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee states that “I have in my letter to the DCP, questioned the Police on various aspects. In all fairness the first thing that I have asked them is that when Hrithik Roshan in his complaint  made to the Police in December 2014, claims to have gained knowledge of an imposter from many people including his fans and people from the film industry then why has no one been questioned till now in the said matter. This could mean only one thing i.e. either Hrithik Roshan publicly lied about various people giving him information about an imposter or the Police did not do their job diligently as was required under Section 154 of CRPC, and close the matter by filing an appropriate report in time. The Police were of course not waiting for good 15 mooknths after having received first hand information of a cognizable offence from Hrithik in December 2014, to suddenly delete the names of all other witnesses as reported in media and name Kangana in the month of March 2016, and then thereafter they suddenly go on a wild goose chase as if they are searching for some stolen national treasure”.

Today is the first anniversary of President Obama’s announcement of the expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and the creation of a new deferred action program for parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who have been in the U.S. for at least five years (DAPA). Although implementation was to begin on Feb. 18, 2015 for expanded DACA and May 19, 2015 for DAPA, these deferred action initiatives have been blocked by a federal district court since February 16.  On Nov. 9, a divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit issued its long-delayed decision upholding the lower court’s hold on DAPA and expanded DACA.
