Mumbai: Two more activists of Shiv Sena
and MNS along with two students have been arrested in
connection with the attack on two colleges in suburban Andheri
which had barred 206 students from writing the exams for poor
attendance.

The accused were nabbed on Sunday and produced before
a local court this morning which remanded them in judicial
custody for four days, Senior Inspector at Andheri Police
Station S Deshmukh said.

At least 20 persons are still wanted in the case, he
said, adding, "a manhunt for the remaining people is on."

On Friday morning, Shiv Sena and Maharashtra
Navnirman Sena activists had barged into Chinai and MVLU
colleges run by Laxmi Charitable Trust and damaged some
property demanding permission for the debarred students to
appear in exams, police said.

On the same day, police had arrested three Sena men
including MLA Abhijeet Adsul and 14 MNS workers and booked
them under IPC sections 147 (Punishment for rioting), 148
(Rioting, armed with deadly weapon) and 448 (Punishment for
house-trespass) and relevant sections of Bombay Police Act.

All of them were granted bail by the court.
