HC scheduled to hear Raj Thackera's petition

india Updated: Nov 14, 2008 13:13 IST

MNS President Raj Thackeray's plea to transfer a complaint case from a Jamshedpur court to Mumbai is scheduled to come up before Jharkhand High Court on Friday.

The High Court had on October 25 adjourned the hearing.

Thackeray filed the petition last month after a complaint case was filed against him in a Jameshdpur court in June in which the complainant charged him with insulting religious beliefs.

Jamshedpur judicial magistrate A K Tiwari has already issued an arrest warrant after Thackeray failed to appear before it, moving him to approach the high court for transfer of the case.

Thackeray is facing as many as seven complaint cases against him in Jamshedpur (4), Jamtara, Garwah and Dhanbad in Jharkhand alone for his anti-north Indian accusations and attacks on them by MNS activists.
