Shiv Sena attack
The offices of Hindi and Marathi TV news channels IBN-7 and IBN-Lokmat in Noida and Mumbai were attacked and vandalised by Shiv Sena activists on 20 November 2009 who also slapped the chief editor Nikhil Wagle in the face (footages of which were shown on the channel itself after the attack). Shiv Sena attributed the attacks to the criticisms of Bal Thackeray by the news channel over his remarks on Sachin Tendulkar. Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut described the attacks as "spontaneous"., although it was vivid to be a planned act by Sena out of frustration of past few tough days of elections. Shiv Sena claimed that the people involved in that spontaneous attack were beaten up by rented goons of the chief editor Nikhil Wagle as he was aware of the possible attack.
