The Supreme Court on Friday transferred to a Delhi court seven cases registered against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray in Bihar and Jharkhand for his alleged hate speeches against north Indians.

Cases against Thackeray were registered for his alleged inflammatory speeches from January 2008.

A bench comprising Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan and BS Chauhan decided to transfer all proceedings relating to those cases to a Tis Hazari court after the counsel of all the parties consented to it.

Out of the seven cases, five were registered in Jharkhand and two in Bihar by different individuals.

Thackeray had sought transfer of all the cases to one place.
