The Shiv Sainiks, numbering over 70, carried a black flag and shouted slogans of 'Pakistan murdabad' and 'Shashank Manohar murdabad'.

Later, police detained more than two dozen activists and whisked them away, even as Manohar quietly watched from his office.

A protester said that the Shiv Sena would not permit any cricket relations between the two countries until Pakistan stopped the killing of Indian soldiers and civilians on the border.

IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla today strongly condemned the attack on the BCCI's headquarters at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai by Shiv Sena workers protesting against the Board president Shashank Manohar's scheduled meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board chief Shahryar Khan.
"Strongly condemns the attack on BCCI Office by Shiv Sena," Shukla, a top BCCI functionary, wrote on his twitter handle.

"BCCI is a responsible body and will not do anything against national interest. Cricketing decisions should be left to BCCI."

"Cricket is a gentleman's game and the spirit of the game expects same generosity and tolerance from those who love the game," he further tweeted.
