Stone-pelting cases: Raj Thackeray gets bail from Aurangabad court

Aurangabad, Feb 9 (ANI): Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) President Raj Thackeray has been granted bail in three different cases by local courts here.

Thackeray will now have to furnish a personal bond of Rs 30,500.

The cantonment police had registered a case against Thackeray and seven others after a bus of the state transport was damaged in stone- pelting during MNS's anti-North Indians agitation two years ago.

There were incidents of violence at many places in the state after Thackeray's arrest during the agitation.

He also got bail in similar cases from the Railway court and another local court.

Earlier on June 29, 2009, Thackeray was granted bail on surety of rupees one lakh in connection with his role in a 2008 riot case in which North Indians appearing for railway recruitment examination were assaulted.

It maybe recalled that MNS and Shiv Sena activists attacked 17 railway board examination centres in suburban Mumbai on October 19 2008, protesting 'inadequate representation' to locals and chased away candidates from north India.

Ten people were arrested then for disrupting the examination and targeting candidates. Five candidates were admitted to hospitals in Thane and Kalyan following the assault. (ANI)
