Speaking to mangalorean.com M G Hegde said, “We have been arrested by the Panambur police. This is to create fear in the minds of people. This is anti-democratic policy. The police have arrested us, they want to stop our fight. Siddarmaiah is running away instead of meeting the people and finding a solution for the Yettinahole project. We have been arrested by the police but we will not stop our agitation here, it will continue. We are not afraid of arrest, let them arrest us but we will continue our protest against the Yettinahole project till we get justice.

On April 20, in a press meet members of the Netravati Rakshana Samyukta Samiti announced that they will wear a black mask, wave black flags and carry empty pots as a sign of silent protest. But on April 21, when they were on their way to Suratkal to take part in the protest the Panambur police took all the six members into custody.

It is learnt that in Suratkal, the police have arrested Ramachandra Baikampady, Shashiraj Shetty Kolambe, K S Abubakar Bantwal and others.
