Chief Judicial Magistrate S P Singh asked first class judicial magistrate Sanjay Kumar Singh to hold an inquiry into the complaint seeking legal action against Thackeray for his reported utterances that allegedly hurt and insult sentiments of North Indians.
Advocate Sudhir Ojha filed the complaint seeking legal action against the MNS chief. Thackeray had on July 14 blamed ''hordes of migrants'' coming to the city for spurt in crime rate and for the increase of terror attacks in the state.
"I trust the Mumbai police but the influx is so much that there will be intelligence failure and such type of terror attacks would keep happening," Thackeray had reportedly said. The court fixed July 28 as the next date for hearing.
