Angelina Jolie's bodyguards arrested

November 17, 2006 11:21 IST

Three of Angelina Jolie's bodyguards were arrested by the Mumbai police on Friday morning for their involvement in a fracas during the shooting of Jolie's film A Mighty Heart in a Mumbai school on Thursday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 1) Brajesh Singh confirmed the arrests but refused to spell out the charges against them.

Trouble had erupted when the actress reached Anjuman-E-Islam school on Thursday noon for the film shoot, which clashed with the time school students were about to leave for home.

At first, parents were amused to see Angelina shooting in the school premises. Then, it gave way to chaos.

Shainaz Khan, a parent, said. "The school premises was restricted to us and we could not find our children. Angelina's bodyguard abused many of us, including women, and some of them also passed racist comments like 'You bloody Indian.' It was humiliating."

The film unit had apparently set up a Pakistani police station inside the school premises.
