Three men were arrested for manhandling a police sub-inspector (SI), after he tried to stop one of them from jumping the traffic signal while Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s convoy was moving towards the HAL Airport.

The incident took place near Kamaraj Road and Cubbon Road junction on Friday morning. According to the police, the arrested are Anand, 35, a Canara Bank employee, Sarvana Kumar, an employee with DTDC company, and Elwin, a postgraduate student in a private college.
