Mumbai, Sep 20: A court here on Thursday directed the city police to execute the bailable warrant issued against Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray by tomorrow in a case related to a provocative speech made by him last year, which had appeared in his party mouthpiece 'Saamna'.

Thackeray had delivered a speech at Shanmukhananda Hall on June 19 last year on the party's anniversay day and the same was published in 'Saamna'.

NCP activist Munna Tripathi had moved the Metropolitan Court against Thackeray last July in connection with the article, based on a speech by the Sena chief, saying it was "provocative" and meant to cause communal disharmony.

He also accused Thackeray of promoting enmity between two groups on grounds of religion, race and language.

Sanjay Raut, a Rajya Sabha MP and Saamna editor, has also been made a co-accused in the case for publishing Thackeray's entire speech in the paper.

The case is likely to come up for hearing before the trial court on September 27.
