Sameet Thakkar?

After Nagpur Court granted bail to Nagpur resident Sameet Thakkar, Mumbai Police arrested him for allegedly making derogatory comments against Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and State Cabinet Minister Aditya Thackeray on Twitter. 

Cops at VP Road Police Station immediately took him into custody from court premises itself. He will be produced in Mazgaon Court today.

Nagpur Court had bailed Thakkar on a personal bond of Rs 15,000 and a cash surety of Rs 10,000.

The court, on Friday, had extended the police custody of Thakkar, who was arrested on October 24 for posting questionable remarks on twitter like Modern day Aurangzeb? and ?Baby Penguin? against Maharashtra CM and his son Aaditya Thackeray. He had also commented against Energy Minister Nitin Raut.

He was produced before the court after his initial four-day remand had ended and the court had extended his police custody till November 2.

Meanwhile, BKC Police Station in Mumbai also lodged an FIR against Thakkar, who was taken to Mumbai via train.

Official spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Suresh Nakhua recently tweeted that Thakkar will be presented in Mazgaon court on Tuesday, Sameet Thakkar has been brought to Mumbai and will be presented in Mazgaon court today, he said.

Thakkar has over 62,000 followers on Twitter and is also followed by several prominent BJP leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

At the time of arrest, police had described Thakkar as a BJP functionary. However, his brother, Rishi Thakkar, clarified that Sameet was not a part of any political party but just a pro-BJP person.
Rishi also told ANI that his brother was paying the price for a remark that was originally coined by NCP leaders, My brother is paying the price of calling Maharashtra CM a modern-day Aurangzeb and his son, a baby penguin- the terms coined by NCP leaders who are currently in government with them, he said.

It’s human rights violation by police as my brother’s hands were tied and face was covered with black cloth when he was brought to court today. They are treating him the way hard-core terrorist is treated, he added.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
