Social activist Tamanna Hashmi filed the case at a Muzaffarpur district court.

The case was filed under IPC sections 153 (provocation with intent to cause riot), 295 (defiling a place of religious worship) and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace).

Naming Rupani and Thakor as "accused", the petitioner has claimed that the violence against people from Bihar has caused him "hurt".

Judge Gaurav Kamal fixed November 2 as the date of hearing the petition.

The alleged rape of a 14-month-old girl in Sabarkantha district of Gujarat by a resident of Bihar on September 30 had triggered attacks by locals on migrants from the two northern states, forcing many of them to return home.

Thakor had publicly blamed a "non-Gujarati" for the crime.
