India general elections 2009

In the middle of campaigning for the party, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena spokesperson Shirish Parker has a different errand to run. Parker will be visiting the Kherwadi police station by Monday to pick up a warrant issued against him by a Patna court.

“I was busy all day campaigning for the elections. I have had no time to go to the police station in Kherwadi. I will either go late in the night or first thing tomorrow morning,” he said on Sunday.

He confirmed that a Patna court had issued the warrant against him for instigating partymen against north Indian candidates who were appearing for a railway recruitment exam in Mumbai in October last year.

When asked if he would have to go to Patna in the middle of election campaigning, Parker said: “My lawyers will decide that after they have a look at the warrant.”

Patna advocate Keshav Kumar Sinha had filed a complaint case against MNS chief Raj Thackeray and Parker on October 23 on charges of culpable homicide, criminal conspiracy and attempt to murder after a candidate from Nalanda district in Bihar was allegedly killed by MNS activists in Mumbai, where he had gone to appear for the railway exam.
