Official sources said the youth were arrested in various cases, which were registered by the police at that time. “They have been charged for causing restraint and rioting. The arrests have been made a day before the proposed visit of DGP to Ramban police,” sources said adding that police so far arrested nearly two dozen youth of the district in different cases.
