The father of 25 year-old railway job aspirant who was allegedly killed by an MNS mob in Mumbai, on Friday filed a murder case against Raj Thackeray in Bihar.
Seeking initiation of criminal proceedings against the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief and his henchmen, Jagdish Prasad, Pavan Kumar's father, filed the case in the court of CJM Abhimanyu Lal Srivastava here in Nalanda district.
A case has been filed under different sections of IPC including murder and criminal conspiracy.
Three persons have been named as witnesses in the petition.
While two of them had accompanied the youth to Mumbai as guardians and were witness to the assault on Bihari examinees by MNS activists on October 19, another, an acquaintance living in Pune, had received the body of Pavan after post mortem.
The case is likely to be taken up for hearing tomorrow.
Raj Thackeray, whose alleged inflammatory anti-north Indian tirade has led to frequent attacks on Hindi-speaking people in Maharashtra, is facing a number of cases in Bihar.
An advocate, Sudhir Kumar Ojha, has filed a murder and sedition case against the MNS leader in Muzaffarpur, while a dalit examinee Raj Kumar Chaudhary, who suffered a fractured hand in the MNS attack, has filed an FIR in Vaishali against Thackeray for instigating an MNS mob to attack Biharis.
Keshav Kumar Sinha, a lawyer, has filed a complaint case against Raj Thackeray and Shirish Parkar, MNS spokesman, under sections relating to culpable homicide, criminal conspiracy and attempt to murder.
