CHENNAI: Continuing with the series of arrests in connection with the case pertaining to the assault of a physical education teacher, the City Police secured Sebastian (33), brother of Rich India proprietor Arulanandhu, here on Wednesday.

Also arrested was Mohideen Abdulkader (33), a vice-president of Rich India, who was part of the gang which assaulted the teacher.

Sebastian, a resident of United India Colony, Kodambakkam, had been on the run ever since the brutal attack on Baskar, the teacher, at Loyola Matriculation Higher Secondary School, on November 20, after the latter reportedly meted out corporal punishment to the son of Arulanandhu.

Sebastian was very much present on the night of Nov 20 at Kodambakkam  Police station until a case was registered against his brother and the mob which thrashed Baskar who is still undergoing treatment at Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital (RGGGH). However, Sebastian and his brother Arulandhu went underground after the case was registered.

A special team from the City Police led by Deputy Commissioner (CCB-I) S Jayakumar raided a farm house near Tiruchy and arrested Arulanandhu on the night of Nov 30.

In a sequel, Sebastian and Mohideen were arrested from an undisclosed location in the City and are being remanded to judicial custody.

With the arrest of this duo, the arrest tally in the case had reached 38 and the cops indicated that they were mulling the option of prosecuting Aruna, wife of Arulanandhu.

She was the one who came to the school and collected their son, on the day of the incident.
