Narayan Rane acquitted on the statement of ‘slapping’ Uddhav, surety bond also canceled

Union minister Narayan Rane was on Saturday acquitted by an Alibaug court in a case related to his “provocative statements” against former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray. The court has also canceled his surety bonds filed in this case. Rane had told Uddhav in a program that if I had, I would have slapped him hard. Shiv Sena leaders had lodged three FIRs against him in this matter.

The matter is related to a program held on 2021 in the presence of Union Minister Narayan Rane. Speaking at the event, Rane accused Uddhav Thackeray of ignorance about the year of India’s independence and said “I would have given a big slap.”

Shiv Sena leaders expressed a lot of anger on this statement of Rane. Strongly condemned Rane’s remarks. Party leader Vinayak Raut even demanded his removal from the Union Cabinet.

Subsequently, based on complaints filed by Shiv Sena leaders, FIRs were lodged against Rane at several places including Nashik and Pune. An FIR was registered against Rane in 2021 at the Chaturshringi police station under sections 153 and 505 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
