Police said swab samples are being tested in Pauri to confirm the incident. The report is still awaited.

ABVP and Bajrang Dal activists hit the streets as the news about the arrest of the man spread through the hill town on Wednesday, Pauri SSP Jagat Ram Joshi told PTI.

They forced a shutdown of Satpuli market and also vandalised a furniture shop owned by the accused, he said.

Later, the protestors gheraoed the Satpuli police station demanding action against the accused. Additional forces had to be deployed in the town to restore peace and maintain vigil.
