Bhojpur (Bihar), Sep 5 (ANI): A Sub divisional magistrate in Bhojpur in Bihar has issued a non-bailable arrest warrant (NBW) against Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray on Friday for his alleged uncharitable and inflammatory remarks against the Biharis.
Thackeray has made these remarks in his one of articles in Shiv Sena's mouthpiece 'Samna.'
Judicial Magistrate Rakesh Pati Tiwari issued NBW against Thackeray, after the later failed to appear before him in compliance with his July 7 order.
Earlier on July 7, Judge Tiwari issued a bailable warrant against Thackeray, but Thackeray failed to comply the orders by presenting himself or by his lawyers before the court to explain the stand.
A senior advocate Rajesh Kumar Singh has filed the petition in the court in 2008 accusing Thackeray of making comments against Biharis in his party's mouthpiece. (ANI)
