Curfew Imposed In Parts Of Banglore As City Burns Over The Cauvery Issue

What started as a sporadic and an isolated incident, became a raging and a fiery protest by the end of Monday in Bengaluru. The IT-capital is witnessing frenzied mobs vandalising public property and business establishment after the Supreme Court on Monday modified its earlier order of releasing 15,000 cusecs of Cauvery water per day to Tamil Nadu.

Trucks with Tamil Nadu registration numbers were either stoned or set on fire in Bengaluru, Mandya, Mysuru, Chitradurga and Dharwad districts as Kannada activists gave vent to their anger over alleged attacks on state vehicles and property of Kannadigas in the neighbouring state.
