New Delhi: In a breather to MNS chief Raj Thackeray, the Delhi High Court today said its earlier order staying the issuance of non-bailable warrants (NBWs) will continue till August 11 in cases lodged against him for allegedly making anti-Bihari statements.
“The operation of stay against the NBWs is extended till August 11,” Justice Veena Birbal said after hearing brief arguments on Thackeray's plea.
The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief has moved the High Court seeking quashing of the criminal complaints against him for allegedly making inflammatory remarks.
Earlier, on January 30 last year, the court had stayed the execution of NBWs and had tagged the matter with several other similar petitions moved by the MNS chief. On March 7 last, the court had exempted Thackeray from appearing before a trial court here.
All the matters will now come up for hearing on August 11.
