At least 20 persons were arrested on Monday, when they ransacked a TASMAC outlet near Saibaba Temple, on Mettupalayam Road in the city.
According to police, some persons gathered near the outlet, pulled out the stacked bottles and flung them on the road.
They also set fire to some bottles, even as police rushed to the spot and took them into custody. The agitators raised slogans demanding total prohibition in the State, they said.
Meanwhile, as part of intensifying the demand for imposing prohibition, a 53-year old man climbed atop a cell tower in Iduvampalayam in Tirupur, police said.
Police, and fire and rescue personnel are trying to bring him down, they said
