Ten persons – all aged between 24 and 32 – have been arrested after they created a commotion at Tirupattur on Monday. They had gone to a fancy store on Vaniyambadi Main Road in Tirupattur and purchased things including a bat, toy car and scent bottle but they did not pay the money. When Nizar (40), the shopkeeper, asked for the money, they had allegedly roughed him up. Nizar lodged a complaint at the Tirupattur town police station on Monday after which five persons were arrested. The remaining five were nabbed on Tuesday. They were residents of Madapalli and Shivarajpettai, police said.
