Arrest warrant issued against Raj Thackeray for his anti-Bihar remarks

A local court in Jamshedpur today issued an arrest warrant against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray after he failed to appear before it in connection with a case relating to Thackerays anti-Bihar remarks.

Jamshedpur, May 23 : A local court in Jamshedpur today issued an arrest warrant against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray after he failed to appear before it in connection with a case relating to Thackeray's anti-Bihar remarks.

First class judicial magistrate D C Awasthi issued the arrest warrant.

Sudhir Kumar Pappu, prosecution lawyer and also the spokesman of Rashtriya Janata Dal's, East Singhbhum District committee, said in his petition that Thackeray's statement against non-Maharashtrians, particularly the Biharis, was objectionable.

Accusing Thackeray, Pappu said that it was a deliberate attempt by Thackeray to flare up regionalism and casteism in the country.

Earlier on April 19, the court issued summons to Thackeray at his Mumbai residence.

The petition was filed in the court of chief judicial magistrate, P K Moitra in March and later transferred to the first class judicial magistrate.

Thackeray's alleged remarks against the Bihari migrants in Mumbai two months ago had invited widespread condemnation of him, by RJD and other organizations in Bihar and Jharkhand, who also torched his effigy.
