A Hindu Munnani official was arrested by Vengamedu police in Karur district for distributing leaflets calling on Hindus to buy goods only from Hindu community-run shops during Deepavali.

The accused Mr. Sakthivel, 32, is the district coordinator of the Hindu Munnani. Police sources said Sakthivel had distributed the leaflets to members of the public in recent days in Vengamedu.

He was arrested on Wednesday with a case brought against him under IPC Sections 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts detrimental to the maintenance of harmony) and 505 (statements inciting public mischief). Sources said four other people have also been named as defendants in the case.

Meanwhile, police arrested 27 Hindu Munnani members after they attempted to stage a protest in Vengamedu Thursday, condemning Sakthivel’s arrest.
