Statement about the Chief Minister Narayan Rane has no interim relief except in Nashik

Mumbai: The High Court on Friday refused to grant interim relief to Union Minister Narayan Rane for making offensive remarks against Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray in cases filed in places other than Nashik. In fact, Rane should file a separate petition to quash the case filed elsewhere, the court said.

Rane has filed a petition seeking cancellation of cases filed in Mahad, Nashik, Pune, Thane, Jalgaon and Ahmednagar. When the petition was heard on Friday, it would be appropriate for Rane to file a separate petition for each case, said Justice S.K. S. Shinde and Justice N. J. Jamadar’s bench clarified. A case has been registered against Rane in different police stations. Therefore, instead of seeking cancellation of cases filed in different places by a single petition, Rane should file a separate petition. The court also said that it would be easier for the ruling party to get the required information from the police stations.

Rane’s lawyers Ashok Mundargi and Aniket Nikam asked them to file separate petitions seeking quashing of each case as directed by the court. At the same time, he demanded that Rane be given interim protection from harsh action in other crimes like the one in Nashik. The court, however, clarified that it should first file a petition and then look into granting interim relief. Meanwhile, the court extended the period of interim protection from action in Nashik case till September 30. Rane also requested for permission to record answers through television channels.
