Mumbai, Oct 19 (ANI): A railway examination centre in Mumbai was allegedly attacked on Sunday by the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).

The examination was stopped and exam papers were torn in Vidya Bhavan High School, according to reports.

Last night, the MNS activists had created uproar at Thane Station.

Reports also claimed that some activists of MNS pelted stones at people from north India, who came for giving examination.

This is not the first time that the North Indian community has been targeted by MNS activists.

In February, the MNS activists got violent against migrant labourers from north India.

Earlier in November 2003, MNS activists had prevented candidates from other states, mainly the northern states, from appearing in a Railway Board exam in Kalyan. (ANI)
