Ankur and Arjun were arrested in Jhunjhala town whereas Sonu and Naresh Kumar were arrested from Thana Bhawan town by the newly-formed squads, Superintendent of Police (SP) Ajay Lal Sharma said.
They were found passing lewd remarks on the girl students who were returning home after taking their board examination, the SP said.
