Mumbai, Nov 10 (UNI) The Maharashtra government today moved the Bombay High Court, challenging the anticipatory bail granted to MNS chief Raj Thackeray by the Kalyan Sessions Court in a case of destruction of property at Dombivali in Thane district.
On October 22, Kalyan Sessions Judge K K Tantrapale had passed the order after the prosecution sought time to file a reply on the bail plea.
The state has challenged the interim relief granted to Raj in his anticipatory bail application, claiming it to be ''illegal'', as Raj's custody was transferred to Kalyan railway police.
''Once Raj's custody has been transferred to the railway police in another case, the sessions court cannot grant him relief in that matter. The relief should have been granted by the Kalyan railway court,'' the state plea said.
The appliction will come up for hearing tomorrow before Justice V K Tahilramani of the Bombay high court.
