Five Christian missionaries have been arrested in Orissa on a complaint by a group of Hindus that the former were inciting violence among tribes people, police said Sunday.

The Mumbai-based Catholic missionary Karl Silva and his associates were arrested Friday and have been remanded in judicial custody till Nov 4.
