Members of Shiv Sena stormed into the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) office in Mumbai on Monday protesting its president Shashank Manohar's meeting with the chief of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Shahryar Khan, to discuss the fate of bilateral series slated for December.
According to news agency ANI, the Shiv Sena workers barged into the BCCI office holding anti-Pakistan placards and shouted slogans against Shahryar Khan, who is in Mumbai to meet the newly elected BCCI president.
The protesters "gheraoed" BCCI Chief Shashank Manohar's desk and said they will not allow any cricket ties with Pakistan.
They also reportedly shouted anti-Pakistan slogans. Ten Shiv Sena members were detained by the police.
The BCCI has now reportedly rescheduled talks with PCB chief Shahryar Khan for Tuesday following the protest.
The right-wing party has been protesting anything that has to do with Pakistan, and the proposed series is the latest in the series.
Earlier this month, the Shiv Sena had protested the book launch of former Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Kasuri, and its members threw ink on the face of the organiser Sudheendra Kulkarni.
