The Bombay high court on Wednesday issued notices to the state government and MNS chief Raj Thackeray on a petition seeking to register a case against Thackeray and deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar for allegedly instigating their party workers to engage in rioting.


The petition filed by activist Hemant Patil has sought direction to register cases against the duo, whose public criticism of each other allegedly outraged party workers, who engaged in rioting last month. It also urged the court to direct the government to recover the cost of damage to public property.

The court issued notices to all the respondents in the petition and scheduled the next hearing on April 25.
