Mumbai, Oct 21 (ANI): Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray would spend the night in jail, following the denial of bail by the Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate court, in connection with the attack on Railway board examination centres.
The MNS chief was sent to judicial custody till November 4 on Tuesday.
Special Public Prosecutor Majid Memon said, Thackeray would probably spend the night in jail.
No one is above law. You might be the star political leader, but you are answerable to court, said Memon, and added, I emphasised the gravity of Raj Thackerays crime to the court.
However, Thackeray was granted bail in Kherwadi case.
Earlier during the day the Mumbai police issued a gagging order under section 144 against Raj Thackeray, which prohibits him to address the media or carry out any procession for the next two months.
