Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray’s plea for seeking exemption from personal appearance in the Jamshedpur court was rejected by the Chief Judicial Magistrate. The court also instructed Raj to appear before it on November 28. Jamshedpur lawyer Sudhir Kumar Pappu has filed a case against the MNS chief in a local court. Pappu had filed a case in Sonari police station of the district on March 11. When the police did not take any action, he then moved the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) in Jamshedpur on March 13. The CJM’s court on April 19 directed Raj to appear personally before it. When Raj failed to appear, the court issued an arrest warrant against him in May. The MNS chief then approached the Supreme Court in May requesting it to transfer his case from Jamshedpur to Maharashtra, but was told to approach the Jharkhand High Court. The next hearing in this case is scheduled for December 1.
