Delhi court orders FIR against Raj

A Delhi court Monday directed the police to lodge an FIR against MNS chief Raj Thackeray for allegedly branding Muslims from north India as insurgents and threatening to throw them out of Maharashtra. The court said it was "primary and bounden duty of the police to register an FIR and proceed with investigation" but the authorities have "failed to discharge" their duty.

The order came on a complaint that Raj had blamed Muslims from UP, Bihar and Jharkhand for the August 11, 2012 violence during protests against the Assam riots.
