Ranas and Hanuman Chalisa row
In April, Navneet Rana and her MLA husband Ravi Rana had announced that they would recite Hanuman Chalisa outside Matoshree, the private residence of Maharashtra Chief Minister and Shiv Sen president Uddhav Thackeray in Mumbai.
On April 23, they were arrested by Mumbai police on charges of sedition and promoting enmity among communities for their insistence on chanting the Hanuman Chalisa outside Matoshree.
On May 4, the two lawmakers were granted bail by a Mumbai court in the case.
