Mumbai, Nov 11 (UNI) The Court today extended till December 5, the interim relief to Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray in a case filed against him under the juridiction of Government Railway Police (GRP), as prosecution mentioned in the court that they have challenged its earlier order in the Bombay High Court.
The Metropolitan Magistrate D A Jadhav extended the interim relief till December 5 on the request of public prosecutor.
On the last occasion, the court had granted Mr Thackeray a cash bail in a rioting and assault case, registered with the Manpada police station in Thane city.
After getting bail in the Manpada case, Mr Thackeray's advocate came to know that the GRP had come to take custody of the MNS chief, so he then moved an Anticipatory Bail Application (ABA) in the same court. After a lengthy argument, the court granted him interim relief till today.
Mr Thackeray was arrested in Ratnagiri in the early hours of October 21, by a police team from Kherwadi police station in suburban Bandra on charges of attacking candidates from North India, who were here to appear for a Railway Recruitment Board Examination on October 19.
