Erode(TN), Apr 28 (PTI) Six Thailand nationals, arrested

for violating their visa norms and were undergoing treatment

for coronavirus at a government hospital near here after

police said on Tuesday.

They were shifted to Puzhal prison in Chennai after being

discharged from the Perundurai IRT Government Medical College

Hospital in the district.

All the six were shifted to Puzhal prison on Monday night

with police security, they said.

The arrest was effected at the hospital days after cases

were registered against them under relevant sections of IPC.

of the hospital.

The action was taken based on a complaint by local

Tahsildar lodged with the police.

The Thai Nationals, who possessed tourist visas engaged

themselves in Islamic preaching despite suffering from COVID-

some three weeks ago, stayed at Kollampalayam Housing Unit

complex and engaged themselves in preaching.
