Twenty members of the Hindu Youths Federation were arrested for allegedly tearing and burning pictures of tennis star Sania Mirza to protest against her proposed marriage with Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik.

The members held a demonstration earlier condemning Sania Mirza for choosing a Pakistani, and demanded that she should instead marry an Indian Muslim.

They were arrested as they tore and burnt the pictures in the middle of the road disrupting road traffic, police said.
