Four suspected Naxal supporters, who planned to disrupt the ongoing world Tamil classical language conference at Coimbatore, were arrested at a village near the town early on Friday morning, police said.
A police team, acting on a tip off, arrested the four from Hale village, seven km from Dharampuri as they were holding discussions in this regard. On seeing the police party, they took to their heels, but police gave chase and nabbed them.
Police said one of them was an activist of People's Democratic Youth League (PDYL), another district in charge of Anti Imperialists Movement (AIM) and the other two, workers of the outfits.
All of them have been remanded to 15 days judicial custody, they said.
