MANGALORE : Tension prevailed in the city for quite some time on Thursday following a fracas between two groups over the issue of a love affair between a Christian lady student and a Hindu student at the Jai Matha Education Trust functioning near the Rao and Rao Circle in Bunder police station limits in the city.
Police have taken into custody three youth who were clashing in public near the Rao and Rao Circle. They have been identified as Ronald Saldanha, a resident of Kunjattbail, Lokesh and Aneesh.
On gathering news that a Hindu youth was in love with another Christian lady student at Jai Matha Trust, the relatives of the girl had been to the Trust and had thrashed the youth. When the latter objected to this, there was a fracas between some Hindu and Christian youth. It is said that even the Christian youth who were involved in the fracas belonged to an organization. At this point even the Sri Rama Sene activists made an entry into the scene resulting in a clash.
Though no complaint was lodged in connection with this case, police have voluntarily registered a case and have arrested the accused.
