Additional Metropolitan Magistrate G Wankhede while granting bail to Thackeray instructed him to abstain from making any provocative speeches, Special Public Prosecutor Majeed Memon said.

The MNS leader was also instructed to appear before the police and register his attendance and not to influence any witnesses in the case, he said.

Thackeray arrested in connection with a case registered against him and party activists for his involvement in assaulting candidates appearing for a Indian Railways recruitment exam on October 19.

After the bail granted by the magistrate's court, the Thane police moved a transfer application and took him to Dombivali in connection with a similar case lodged there.

There are two other cases registered against Thackeray at Thane and Kanjurmarg, Memon said.
