10 Shiv Sena workers arrested for protesting at BCCI office in Mumbai

New Delhi: After protesting Shiv Sena workers stormed the BCCI office in Mumbai, the local Police arrested 10 workers under Section 141, 143, 149 of IPC and 37(1)/135 of Bombay Police Act.

The protest led to the cancellation of the much-anticipated talks today between BCCI President Shashank Manohar and PCB chief Shaharyar Khan regarding the proposed bilateral series between the two countries in December.

In another update, the Indian board decided to shift the venue of its meeting with PCB to New Delhi.

"The talks have not been called off. Mr Manohar and Mr Khan will speak to each other in evening today and tomorrow they are coming to Delhi for another round of talks," IPL Chairman and senior Board functionary Rajiv Shukla told PTI.

Rajeev Shukla further condemned the attack on the BCCI’s headquarters at the Wankhede Stadium.

“BCCI is a responsible body and will not do anything against national interest. Cricketing decisions should be left to BCCI,” Shukla, who is also a top BCCI functionary, wrote on Twitter.

BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur too, slammed the protest and said that it should be staged on roads and not inside offices.
