Two more priests attached to Swaminarayan temple have been arrested from Surendranagar district in Gujarat connection with the sex CD case.
The priests arrested belonged to the Kalupur sect of Swaminarayan temple at Ahmedabad but worked under its branch in Surendranagar, police said.
The first arrests in the case came in February when a priest of a Swaminarayan temple, Bhaktiswarup, and three other people were arrested for making sleazy video CDs and distributing them.
The police arrested the Surendranagar priests after getting leads from Bhaktiswarup and others involved in the case, the police said.
"They were arrested for featuring in one of the several sex CDs that were seized during investigations. Their role in the conspiracy to fund and execute the entire operation is yet to be probed," the police said.
Ten persons, including three priests, have been arrested in the case so far.
