Rana couple was released from Mumbai’s jail on Thursday after 13 days in custody.
Notably, both Navneet Rana and her husband Ravi Rana were arrested on April 23 after both announced that they will recite Hanuman Chalisa outside Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray.
The announcement triggered the ongoing Hanuman Chalisa in Maharashtra which led to rigorous protest from Shiv Sena.
About the release, Mumbai`s Borivali Court on Thursday issued the release order of Navneet Rana and her husband, Ravi Rana, MLA.
The legal process of furnishing Rs 50,000 each for the Rana couple`s surety amount has been completed in court.
From the Borivali court, one team of lawyers of the Rana couple left for Taloja Jail for the release of Ravi Rana, and another team for Byculla Jail, where Navneet Rana was lodged.
Navneet Rana`s lawyer had dropped a copy of her release order in the bail box placed outside Byculla Jail.
Navneet Rana and Ravi Rana, who was granted bail on Wednesday morning, were not released from jail yesterday as their release orders could not be obtained from the concerned magistrate court in due time.
