Press Trust Of India 

Wielding sticks and hurling stones, hordes of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) workers on Tuesday vandalised a at the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, even as the state's police chief said their leader Raj Thackeray's "provocative" speech that triggered the violence was being examined.

Undeterred by warnings of action, over 50 workers arrived at toll booth on the sea link in cabs, threatened the staff, ransacked it and damaged glass windows, a day after damaging over a score toll plazas across the state.

Sixteen workers were later arrested for unlawful assembly, rioting and deterring public servant from discharging duty, Assistant Commissioner of Police S Kolekar said.
