The incident occurred at around 3.45 pm when the two constables on duty asked the group of 11 men to behave themselves. "The tourists, who were later identified as hailing from Haryana and Delhi, were inebriated when they started hitting the constables who were in uniform," Calangute police station inspector Jivba Dalvi told reporters.

As the constables were outnumbered, other tourists gathered at the spot while additional police forces were called in, Dalvi said.

All the eleven men were arrested under various sections of the IPC and produced before the local court which remanded them in judicial custody.

"Their medical examination has confirmed the presence of alcohol in their blood," the police officer said.
