New Delhi, Jan 30 : The Delhi High Court Wednesday stayed a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackery on two complaints lodged for alleged hate speeches he made against the people of Bihar.

Justice Sunil Gaur granted the stay on the NBW issued by a trial court for allegedly promoting enmity between different groups.

The application for initiating proceedings against Thackery was made by lawyers Sudhir Kumar Ojha from Bihar and Sudhir Kumar from Jharkhand.

The lawyers had said that Thackery had humiliated people from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in a February 2008 speech, while ridiculing the performance of Chhath Puja.
