Narayan Rane could face arrest, a warrant has been issued for making remarks against Thackeray

Nasik: Union Minister Narayan Rane could face arrest as Nasik police have issued an arrest warrant against the BJP leader for making derogatory remarks against Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. A team of Pune City Police has left for Chiplun in Ratnagiri as part of the investigation into the case, ANI reported.

In response to the report, Rane said he was not aware that an FIR had been lodged against him. “I have no idea that an FIR has been lodged against me. I am not an ordinary person. I have not committed any crime. If no one knows about August 15, is it not a crime? These words are said and it is not a crime,” he said.

Speaking at Mahade in Raigad district of Maharashtra, Union Minister Narayan Rane gave the same reference to Thackeray and said that he used to ‘slap’ Thackeray for his Independence Day speech. Shiv Sena’s Nasik city chief Sudhakar Badgujar has reportedly filed a case against Rani in Nasik, following which police have issued an arrest warrant against Narayan Rane.

Elsewhere, an FIR was lodged against Ran at the Chaturshringi police station in Pune city. Following the allegations by the youth wing, an FIR has been lodged against Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray under sections 153 and 505 of the IPC for using offensive language.
