Mumbai, Aug 15: Activists of the Shiv Sena on Tuesday August 14, ransacked the city's office of Outlook news magazine as they were angry about their leader Bal Thackeray being portrayed in a poor light.

About a dozen members of the Shiv Sena party attacked the magazine's office at Raheja Chambers in Nariman Point area this afternoon, smashing windows and damaging computers, the police said, adding that no one was hurt in the attack.

"It was not very clear what the Sena activists were protesting about. We are checking the details," a senior police official said.

This week, Outlook ran a cartoon of Shiv Sena leader Bal Thackeray dressed as Adolf Hitler, of whom Thackeray has spoken approvingly in the past.

The magazine blamed Thackeray's speeches and articles for sparking deadly Hindu-Muslim riots in Mumbai in 1992 and named him as one of several villains in a special issue to mark India's 60th independence anniversary.

"Outlook has definitely tried to demean Thackeray," said Neelam Gorhe, a Shiv Sena spokesman.

Police said they were yet to make any arrests.
