india Updated: Oct 29, 2008 19:34 IST

A fifth case was lodged against MNS chief Raj Thackeray in Jharkhand on Wednesday in connection with death of a Bagunhatu resident in Maharashtra's Raigarh district.

M Rajeswar, who was set on fire at Raigarh district on July 16, was admitted to the Alibagh civil hospital and succumbed to his injuries two days later, a petition filed by M Prabhakar, the younger brother of the victim, said.

The chief judicial magistrate P K Moitra has taken cognisance of the case, registered against Thackeray and 15 others, and has transferred it to the court of Ist class judicial magistrate B K Pandey for proper inquiry.

The court has fixed November 12 for the proceedings, Prabhakar's counsel Devendra Sindh told PTI.

This is the fifth case filed against Thackeray in Jharkhand -- three in Jamshedpur, one in Garwah and one in Jamtara.
