Bihar court orders registration of case against Raj Thackeray

Bettiah (Bihar):  A district court here today ordered registration of case against MNS chief Raj Thackeray for his comments blaming "Bihari" migrants for the recent case of gangrape 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.

Thackeray had blamed Bihari migrants for the recent case of gangrape of a girl in New Delhi.

Addressing a public function in suburban Goregaon on Saturday, he said, “All are talking about the Delhi gangrape, but nobody is asking from where these men came. No one is asking who did this. So many cases are slapped against me (for speaking against Biharis) but no one is talking about the fact that all these rapists are from Bihar.”
