HC stays non-bailable warrant against Raj Thackeray
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday stayed a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on two complaints lodged for alleged hate speeches he made against the people of Bihar.
Justice Sunil Gaur granted the stay on the NBW issued by a trial court for allegedly promoting enmity between different groups.
The application for initiating proceedings against Thackery was made by lawyers Sudhir Kumar Ojha from Bihar and Sudhir Kumar from Jharkhand.
The lawyers had said that Thackeray had humiliated people from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in a February 2008 speech, while ridiculing the performance of Chhath Puja.
