Mumbai: The Mumbai police on Monday filed an application in a special court seeking cancellation of the bail granted to independent MP Navneet Rana and her MLA-husband Ravi Rana, accused in a sedition case following a row over the recitation of Hanuman Chalisa, PTI reported.

As per the report, the police sought that the couple’s bail be cancelled on the ground that they had allegedly violated one of the conditions imposed by the special court while granting them bail last week.

Navneet Rana, the Lok Sabha member from Amravati in Maharashtra, and her husband Ravi Rana, the legislator from Badnera in Amravati, were arrested by the Mumbai police on April 23 after they announced that they would recite the Hanuman Chalisa outside Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s private residence ‘Matoshree’ in Bandra area here.
