VILLUPURAM:Police on Wednesday arrested three school students, all Dalits, and three Pattali Makkal Katchi men for a clash near Vanur on Tuesday night in connection with a one-side love affair of a Dalit boy with a caste Hindu girl.
According to sources, Ranjith (19 - name changed), of T Parangini fell in love with Ramya(16 - name changed), his classmate. Though Ramya rejected him, he continued troubling her. A week ago, Ramya informed the matter to her parents, who later threatened the boy. Some caste Hindu boys also threatened Ranjith. On learning this, Dalit boys in the school stood behind Ranjith and the two groups attacked each other, leading to a clash between the groups’ supporters.
