One person has died and another received injuries after police opened fire upon protesters in Bengaluru’s Rajgopalnagar area. There were many reports of arson and vandalism in Bengaluru and on a highway to Mysuru during protests against the Supreme Court’s modified order directing Karnataka to release 12,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu till 20th September. 15,000 policemen have been deployed across the IT city. Prohibitory orders under section 144 have been imposed in the city. Curfew has been imposed in 16 police station limits in Bengaluru.

However, in view of the festival of EID today, Police clarified that prohibitory orders will not apply to place of worships and Idgahs. 10 companies of Rapid Action Force, CRPF, and ITBP have already been deployed since yesterday. The angry protesters torched many vehicles including state transport buses and trucks while damaging hundreds of vehicles in stone pelting on Tamil Nadu – Karnataka border. Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah has convened an emergency cabinet meeting today to take stock of the situation. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had earlier telephonically talked to Chief Ministers of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and inquired about the situation and offered all possible assistance.
