Bettiah: A district court here on Monday ordered registration of case against MNS chief Raj Thackeray for his comments blaming "Bihari" migrants for the recent case of gang-rape of a girl in New Delhi.

Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Manoj Kumar Singh of West Champaran district issued the order on a complaint filed by an advocate against the chief of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena.

The CJM ordered the town police station to register a case against Thackeray under CRPC 156 III (police officer`s power to investigate cognisable case).

The lawyer alleged that the MNS chief through his provocative statement threatened the national unity and integrity.
