Sena men ransack magazine office after it calls Thackeray villain

August 14, 2007 16:45 IST

A group of Shiv Sena activists on Monday ransacked the Mumbai office of the weekly magazine Outlook to protest an article that featured party chief Bal Thackeray in a list of villains.

The activists barged into the office located in a tower in the business district of Nariman Point at around 1500 hours and asked for the editor.

They started ransacking the office on being told that there was no senior person around, the police said.

Eyewitnesses said some windows and office stationery were damaged in the incident.

Thackeray was included in the list of villains along with Mahatma Gandhi's [Images] assassin Nathuram Godse, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin in a recent issue of the magazine, which also featured a caricature of the Sena chief with a toothbrush moustache and Hitler-like uniform.
