MALAPPURAM: The Tirur police have registered a case against 12 persons following an attack on local residents by a group of students, which left eight persons injured. The students had blocked Annara road in Tirur city on Friday to hold the viral Tik Tok ‘challenge’ of dancing in front of moving vehicles.
Some residents questioned them and this led to minor clashes. Supported by goons, some of the students came back on Monday and attacked residents and shop owners.
They also pelted stones at houses and shops, injuring a woman. A police force from Tirur station rushed to the spot but the gang managed to escape.
Tirur SI Sumesh Sudhakaran said a probe was launched and the attackers will be arrested soon.
