Mumbai: A group of Shiv Sainiks on Monday morning protested at BCCI president Shashank Manohar's office here against his move to hold talks with his Pakistani counterpart Shahryar Khan to resume cricket ties between the two countries.

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 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.
