Panaji: Four members of a popular music band were arrested by Goa Police on Wednesday for allegedly hurting religious sentiments during a performance at the ongoing Serendipity Arts Festival here.

Sumant Balakrishnan, Anirban Ghosh, Shiva Pathak and Nirmala Ravindera, members of the band 'Dastaan', were arrested under section 295-A of the Indian Penal Code (hurting religious feelings).

Venkat Krishna Kunduru, a lawyer, had filed a complaint against them, said a senior police official.
