April 02, 2008 20:43 IST

A local court in Jamshedpur has issued summons against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray for his remarks over Chatt festival leading to agitation in several parts of the country, including Bihar and Jharkhand.

He has been asked to appear before the court on April 22. The court of first class judicial magistrate A K Tiwari issued the summons on Tuesday after examining witnesses Rajhans Tiwari, Sanjay Prasad and Niranjan Prasad (all lawyers).

Earlier, lawyer-cum-complainant Hameed Raza Khan had lodged a petition in the court of chief judicial magistrate P K Moitra against Thackeray for hurting the religious sentiment of a section of society.
