Three Kashmiri students of an engineering college in Hubli, Karnataka, facing sedition charges have been arrested again after being released a day earlier.

The police summoned them on Monday morning amid protests by Hindutva groups.

Members of Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad staged a protest outside the Gokul police station soon after the students’ release.

Hubli police commissioner R. Dilip on Monday said:“We summoned them again today (Monday) after we found incriminating evidence and subsequently arrested them,”

But he did not dwell into why they were arrested after being released just hours earlier.

Police had arrested them on Saturday after a purported video clip they had recorded showed them chanting “Pakistan zindabad”.

The police released them on Sunday citing Section 169 of CrPc that permits any person to be released for want of proper evidence.

They were produced before a court that remanded them for 14 days in judicial custody.
