Nine persons have been arrested in connection with three cases registered following a skirmish between Ayyappa devotees and a few local residents in Sunkadakatte in Bajpe police station limits on Monday.

An argument led to an exchange of blows between Ayyappa devotees and a group of residents near a polytechnic in Sunkadakatte on Monday.

The police said a group of people came to the tent where Swami Ayyappa devotees had camped and asked them not to pray loudly. This led to a heated exchange of words between the two groups and exchange of blows.

Both the groups have lodged separate complaints at the Bajpe police station. A person who was injured in the incident has filed a separate complaint.
