In fresh trouble for Amravati MP Navneet Rana and her husband MLA Ravi Rana, who were arrested in the Hanuman Chalisa row, the Maharashtra government will be challenging the bail granted to the couple. Special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat said the state government will move court for the cancellation of bail granted to the Ranas.
Mumbai Police arrested the couple on April 30 in an alleged case of sedition. Gharat said the couple had violated conditions of the bail granted and, hence, the state government will be challenging the same. He further said the Ranas had made such statements that amounted to contempt of court resulting in a breach of conditions for bail.
Gharat added that the petition to cancel the bail will be submitted to the sessions court on Monday.
Navneet and Ravi Rana walked out of jail on May 5, a day after being granted bail.
