N Indian youths attack Maharashtra Sadan

New Delhi: The Maharashtrian-North Indian standoff in Mumbai has spilled on to the streets of Delhi.

A group of 20 youths, reportedly from Bihar, attacked Maharashtra Sadan in the capital on Monday.

The Rashtrawadi Sena has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The youths were protesting attacks on North Indians in Maharashtra. The mob ransacked the reception of the building and raised slogans against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Anand Mohan said that the situation was brought under control soon. However, no one has been arrested.

A journalist, Balasaheb Ambekar working a regional language paper in Maharashtra, Jivhala, said that the guards couldn't stop the attackers.

"The security guards tried to stop them but couldn't. They all looked like bouncers and they went on a rampage," Ambekar said.
