Five members of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's transport wing have been arrested for allegedly vandalising a bus used for transporting members of the Indian Premier League (IPL) teams near a five-star hotel in south Mumbai.


They claimed the bus contract was given to a Delhi-based company rather than a local businessmen.


The incident took place late Tuesday night when the MNS workers allegedly pelted the bus with stones and broke it window panes with sticks. They carried banners and shouted slogans opposing the transportation contract given to a Delhi-based company, the official said.


Later, police reached the spot and took five MNS workers into custody. A case was registered against them under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including rioting, the official said.


The IPL teams are staying in some of the plush hotels here, ahead of the beginning of the matches on March 26.
