Police on Thursday arrested a duo for allegedly circulating objectionable religious content, triggering communal tension at S.R. Nagar on Wednesday.

A case under the IT Act and IPC Sections 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion, etc) and 295-A (acts intended to outrage religious feeling by insulting religious belief), was registered against A. Praveen Goud and his cousin A. Rajesh Goud, whose names had figured in a similar instance that occurred a year ago. They were not arrested then. Even as police detained the duo, a mob gathered outside urging serious action against them.
