Raj Thackeray refuses notice of Maharashtra PoliceMay 9th, 2008 - 10:00 pm ICT by admin
Mumbai, May 9 (ANI): Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray on Friday refused to accept a notice issued by the Maharashtra Police to observe restraint and not to commit any cognisable offence through his speeches and writings which could create law and order problems in the state. This led the police team to paste the notice outside his Shivaji Park residence in Mumbai.
The notice says that a certain section of the society in Maharashtra (North Indians) feels insecure in the wake of recent events that can create a law and order situation.
A senior police officer described it as a preventive notice served under the provisions of Section 149 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
He said the notice could be used against Raj Thackeray in a court if he commits a cognizable crime. (ANI)
