The Ernakulam Central Police on Tuesday arrested the Ernakulam Law College student who allegedly ran naked through MG road demanding the removal of Justice K G Balakrishanan from the Chairman post of the National Human Rights Commission on December 17.
The police revealed the identity of the student as Roshan Oommen, 26, Chirakkal village, Kannur.
According to the police, Roshan surrendered before the police on Tuesday afternoon. However, when press photographers arrived at the Central Police Station for taking his photograph, he fled.
The police later found and arrested him. Another case of escaping from police custody has also been registered against him.
Sub-Inspector Ananthalal, of the Central Police Station, said that they will produce him before the court on Wednesday and seek police custody.
“Since he is not cooperating with us, we will demand police custody. We have to get details on his associates in the case, and procedures like evidence collection has not yet been completed. Earlier, he was arrested and remanded by the court for misbehaving with a teacher of the law college,” said Ananthalal.
