MNS leader Raj Thackeray on Thursday presented himself before the Kherwadi police in suburban Bandra in keeping with the direction of the court which granted him bail in a case relating to the attacks on north Indian job aspirants.
Raj, who returned home yesterday after he was given bail by a magistrate's court in neighbouring Kalyan, went to the Kherwadi police station along with some party workers to register his attendance.
The MNS leader was arrested from Ratnagiri on Tuesday in connection with a case regarding assault on north Indian candidates appearing for railway recruitment board exams on October 19. He was later remanded to judicial custody till November 4 and granted bail by a magistrate's court in Bandra.
One of the conditions stipulated by the court was that Thackeray would need to mark his attendance at the Kherwadi police station in Bandra.
Raj is also likely to attend proceedings at a magistrate's court in the north east suburb of Vikhroli since the police has sought to cancel the bail awarded to him in another case.
The MNS leader was earlier arrested in February for his comments against members of the north Indian community and was released after being granted bail by the magistrate's court in Vikhroli.
The court had also issued a notice to Thackeray asking why the bail should not be cancelled since he had allegedly violated the conditions stated by the court while granting it, the MNS leader's lawyers said.
