A court here today issued a non-bailable warrant against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president Raj Thackeray for not appearing before it in connection with a case filed for his allegedly inflammatory speech against the people of Bihar.
The court of Additonal Chief Judicial Magistrate (second) has posted the matter for June 18 and ordered Thakeray to appear before it on that date. The court had earlier issued a bailable warrant against the MNS chief four times but he didn't appear before it.
Lawyer Devlal Prasad had on September 27, 2012, filed the case against Raj Thackeray for his alleged inflammatory speech against the people of Bihar. When Thackerey didn't appear before the court, Prasad sought the issuance of non-bailable against him.
