THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Vattiyoorkavu police have arrested seven people including BJP’s corporation councillor Rajeev in connection with organising a protest march to a place of worship the other day.

The act was reported a couple of days before and had led to eruption of tension in the area. The protest march was said to be in response to an incident of cow slaughter which occurred in central Kerala.

With the arrest of councillor and six others, the total tally of those apprehended  have risen to 18. The arrested have been charged under half a dozen sections of Indian Penal Code, including that of unlawful assembly and promoting enmity between different groups on the basis of religion.
