Raj Thackeray returns home amidst celebrations
October 22, 2008 19:20 IST
Hundreds of supporters who thronged his residence 'Krishna Kunj' in the Shivaji Park area of central Mumbai and celebrated Thackeray's return by bursting crackers after a court in Kalyan granted him interim bail.
"He is happy that he has been released from police custody and appealed to MNS activists to maintain peace," Shishir Shinde, general secretary of the MNS, said.
Thackeray was arrested from Ratnagiri in connection with cases of assault registered against MNS activists for attacking north Indian candidates appearing for railway recruitment exams.
The MNS leader spent the night in custody at the Manpada police station in neighbouring Dombivali and was produced before a magistrate's court in Kalyan where he was granted bail. On Tuesday, he had been granted bail in a similar case by a court in Mumbai.
