New Delhi, Jan 30 : The Delhi High Court today stayed the non-bailable warrant(NBW) against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray for his hate speeches against people of Bihar.

Justice Sunil Gaur stayed the two complaints lodged by two different groups against Thackeray in connection with the hate speeches he made against people of Bihar.

The court granted stay on the NBW issued by a trial court for allegedly promoting enmity between two groups.

The lower court had issued NBW on the petitions filed against Thackeray by two lawyers Sudhir Kumar Ojha from Bihar and Sudhir Kumar from Jharkhand.

The petitioners had claimed that Thackeray had humiliated people of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in a February 2008 speech, as he spoke about their Chhath Puja.
