Mangaluru | Three members of Sri Rama Sene (SRS) have been arrested in connection with the raid on a school over alleged forcible teaching of Urdu and Arabic languages.

The three were arrested based on a complaint by the headmaster of St Thomas Aided Higher Primary School that the activists barged into the classroom where students were being taught Arabic.

A group of around 50 Sri Rama Sene activists had raided the school at Padu Bandanthila on July 30 after locals complained about students being taught Arabic and Urdu forcibly. City Police Commissioner M Chandra Sekhar said that cases of trespass and rioting had been registered against the right-wing activists and a few more persons were likely to be arrested.
