The Indian Government Railway Police have arrested the three men who attacked a Buddhist monk at Chennai Central railway station on Monday.

Venerable W.M.K. Bhandara  was attacked by the men on board the Tamil Nadu Express, just as it arrived at the station.

On checking CCTV footage, the GRP found that one of the attackers, was wearing a cap and sporting a beard.

He was identified as Periyar Anban of the Naam Tamizhar Tamil outfit.

On Tuesday all three men were nabbed in Periamet.

The other two were identified as Saravana Prakash and Prabhakaran of Kothavalchavadi.

Indian media reports that the attack however, does not seem to have deterred Sri Lankan tourists.

Yesterday around 280 tourists arrived at Central after visiting Bodh Gaya.

The GRP and the Railway Protection Force are also coordinating with other states including New Delhi to keep track of Sri Lankans travelling to Chennai.
