Mumbai: After actor Emraan Hashmi accused a housing society in posh Bandra of religious bias in not providing a no-objection certificate (NOC) to purchase a flat, Maharashtra government today said it would probe the issue and take action against the guilty.

"We have instructed Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rakesh Maria to conduct an inquiry and action would be taken against those found guilty," Minister of State for Home Naseem Khan told PTI.

Emraan has written to the Home Department accusing the Nibbana cooperative housing society in the Pali Hill area of religious discrimination in not providing the NOC to purchase a flat in the society, Khan said.

"This is a violation of fundamental rights under Article 14 of the Constitution and 153 (A) of CrPC and also threatens communal harmony," the minister said.
