So far, five persons, including the main accused, Kaari Ratheesh, have been arrested in the case. Police officials maintained that they are on the course of imposing KAAPA against the accused. Earlier it was in the last week that a group of people broke into the set of the movie ‘Minnal Murali’ and broke the set of the Christian mosque erected for shooting, once the nationwide lockdown is lifted. The accused maintained that the mosque was erected on a close proximity to the Siva temple in Manapuram. They also promoted the video footages of the incident through social media to spread communal violence.
