India police have arrested three people on charges of being involved in attempting murder of Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Dev.

The arrested youths are Shubham Saha (26), Aman Saha (25) and Gairik Ghosh (24).

Tripura state assistant public prosecutor Bidyut Sutradhar confirmed the matter to media on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the incident has caused a stir across the state of Tripura and the Chief Minister's security cordon has been beefed up.

The trio drove a car through the security cordon of the chief minister when he was out on an evening walk near his official residence at Shyamaprasad Mukerjee Lane on Thursday.

Deb managed to jump aside as the vehicle whisk past him, but one of his security personnel sustained minor injuries, police said.
