Muzaffarpur: A local court on Saturday ordered an
inquiry into the reported comments of MNS chief Raj Thackeray
blaming north Indian migrants for spurt in crime rate in
Mumbai.

Chief Judicial Magistrate S P Singh asked first class
judicial magistrate Sanjay Kumar Singh to hold an inquiry into
the complaint seeking legal action against Thackeray for his
reported utterances that allegedly hurt and insult sentiments
of North Indians.
Advocate Sudhir Ojha filed the complaint seeking legal
action against the MNS chief.

Thackeray had on July 14 blamed `hordes of migrants`
coming to the city for spurt in crime rate and for the
increase of terror attacks in the state.

"I trust the Mumbai police but the influx is so much that
there will be intelligence failure and such type of terror
attacks would keep happening," Thackeray had reportedly said.
The court fixed July 28 as the next date for hearing.
