Bantwal, Mar 8, 2015 : Three students including a boy and two girls belonging to different communities who were spotted at a hotel at Melkar near Panemangalore were detained by the local police on March 7, Saturday following a tip off from activists of a Hindu organisation. It has been gathered that the youngsters had arrived at the hotel to celebrate the birthday of one of their friends.
The students were later released with a warning after their parents and hostel authorities were summoned and a bond was signed.
According to sources, the girls who stayed in a hostel close by Panemangalore had gone to a hotel at Birwa Centre without intimating the hostel authorities and were seen having tea with a boy.
