style>British rule felt better, taunts Sena's Raut after Somaiya's remarks on Rana's jail treatment
Incidentally, Rauts properties too were attached by the Enforcement Directorate in a case related to an alleged Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative PMC Bank scam.
''Uddhav Thackeray's mafia jailors gave Navneet Rana the kind of treatment that English jailors would give. I will brief the BJP leadership and also the Lok Sabha Speaker,” Somaiya said in New Delhi on Friday.
The couple had said they would recite Hanuman Chalisa outside Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray's private residence 'Matoshree' here, which angered workers of the Shiv Sena. The couple later dropped the plan.
Special court judge R N Rokade, while granting bail to the lawmaker couple on Wednesday, held that prima facie at this stage the charge under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 124(A) (sedition) was not made out against the couple.
The Sena has been alleging misuse of central agencies by the BJP at the Centre. Incidentally, Raut's properties too were attached by the Enforcement Directorate in a case related to an alleged Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative (PMC) Bank scam.
