Police on Saturday arrested Youth workers who held a beef festival ahead of Prime Minister Modi's arrival in the coastal city.

The festival took place near the Southern Naval Command's air terminal where Modi is expected to arrive and inaugurate the state's first metro line.

As the Youth workers were arrested while they were cooking and serving beef.
