Mumbai court on Monday granted bail to sixteen Shiv Sena workers who were arrested by Khar Police yesterday
Mumbai court on Monday granted bail to sixteen Shiv Sena workers who were arrested by Khar Police yesterday for allegedly causing a ruckus outside the residence of Amravati MP Navneet Rana and her husband Ravi Rana, an MLA.
Workers from the Shiv Sena have been released. The Shiv Sena workers were detained for allegedly causing a commotion outside the Rana couple’s home.
On Saturday, the MP-MLA pair announced their intention to recite Hanuman Chalisa outside Matoshree, the state Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s private residence.
The MP-MLA couple, however, were unable to carry out their plan after being detained by the police and sentenced to 14 days in judicial imprisonment by a local court.
However, they canceled their plans to recite Hanuman Chalisa in the face of Shiv Sena workers’ protests, which resulted in their detention on charges of inciting hatred between different groups. A local court ordered Navneet Rana and Ravi Rana to be held in judicial detention for 14 days on Sunday.
