Mumbai: Nearly 50-70 workers of the Shiv Sena barged inside the Mumbai Press Club on Tuesday where a Pakistani band was holding a press conference and shouted slogans against them.

The sloganeering Shiv Sena activists demanded that Pakistani Sufi band Mekaal Hasan be sent back. "No Pakistani individual or group will be allowed in Mumbai," the protesters shouted.

The police were immediately called in. The protesters have now been taken to the Azad Maidan police station and a case of unauthorised entry has been filed.

There were no reports of vandalism, however.
