Forty-one Hindu Munnani volunteers including Mahesh, divisional president of the Munnani were arrested when they staged a demonstration opposite to the Collectorate here on Tuesday without the permission of the police.

They were condemning the attack on prison warders in the Central Prison, Puzhal on Friday by Al Umma activists who have been lodged there in various murder cases.

They also carried placards demanding death penalty to the `terrorists’ involved in the killing of Hindu outfit leaders. The arrested persons were later released.
