Shiv Sena activists had stormed headquarters of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on October 19 just before Pakistan Cri­cket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan was to meet BCCI chief Shashank Manohar to discuss a bilateral series in December.

The 'Seniks' had issued threats against a number of Pakistani personalities, including actors Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan, which had also prompted the withdrawal of Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar from India, who was officiating matches in the ongoing India-South Africa series over security concerns.
