Mumbai: The order of a Bihar court to attach properties of Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray for having failed to appear in a case pertaining to publishing a 'contemptuous' article in Sena mouthpiece Saamana was dubbed as "joke of the century" by the party on Tuesday.

"The (court) order to attach the Sena chief's property is the joke of the century," Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut said, adding Thackeray has always shown respect for court and law.

"As far as the property of the Sena chief is concerned, the lakhs of Shiv Sainiks were his real property and hands that touch it will get burnt," Raut said.

Sub-divisional Judicial Magistrate (Ara) SBM Tripathy had yesterday ordered issue of warrant for attachment of properties of Thackeray in connection with a complaint lodged by lawyer Rajesh Kumar Singh on March 7, 2008.

Singh alleged that Thackeray published the article in Saamana which had hurt the sentiments and feelings of "crores of Biharis".

The attachment order was issued following successive 'failure' of the Sena supremo to appear before the court to explain his position in compliance with summons on several occasions earlier.
