    According to sources in the Bengaluru police, DJ Halli cops have arrested a political activist belonging to SDPI party and identified as Muzzamil Pasha. The accused had also contested BBMP election last time from Sagayapura ward unsuccessfully.

    Miscreants said to have damaged the streetlights all along the violence area and damaged the CCTVs of the shops on the road and those installed by the police along the road before going on rampage.

    Police have been analysing and reviewing the CCTV footage and arrested more than 150 people pertaining to the last night’s violence, arson.

    The third person who was severely injured succumbed to injuries in the wee hours of Wednesday at Bowring hospital in Shivajinagar.

    Those who incited and perpetrated the #bangaloreriots must be found, arrested & given exemplary punishment. But they are not to be equated with an entire community any more than thugs & vigilantes represent all Hindus. This also happened in Bangalore:

    ನಿನ್ನೆ ರಾತ್ರಿ ನಡೆದ ಗಲಭೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರು, ಪೋಲೀಸರು, ಸಾರ್ವಜನಿಕರ ‌ಮೇಲೆ ಹಲ್ಲೆ ಮಾಡಿರುವುದು ಅಕ್ಷಮ್ಯ. ಇಂತಹ ಪ್ರಚೋದನೆ, ಪುಂಡಾಟಗಳನ್ನು ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಕಿಂಚಿತ್ತೂ ಸಹಿಸುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ದುಷ್ಕರ್ಮಿಗಳ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ಕಠಿಣ ಕ್ರಮ ನಿಶ್ಚಿತ. ಜನರು ಈ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಆವೇಶಕ್ಕೆ ಒಳಗಾಗದೆ ಸಂಯಮದಿಂದ ವರ್ತಿಸಬೇಕೆಂದು ಮನವಿ ಮಾಡುತ್ತೇನೆ. (2/2)

Garuda commandos have also been deployed in the area to carry out patrolling along with the law and order and traffic police in KG Halli and DJ Halli police station jurisdiction.

    During the stone-pelting incident, both Commissioner Kamal Pant and DCPs were also hit. As the commissioner was wearing the armour. Even though the helmet worn by the commissioner was damaged, he escaped unhurt.

    The senior officers of @BlrCityPolice request public not to make the issue big & indulge in unlawful activity. They will verify the allegations & take necessary action, so they urge ppl 2 maintain peace. @DeccanHerald @nkaggere @CPBlr @BSBommai @CMofKarnataka

    Trying to control the situation and disperse the crowd, the police fired in the air in front of the KG Halli police station. However, there was no sign of control as the mob continued with their violence protest. In the resulting violence, one person was found dead while the three others were injured severely. However, the police refused to confirm whether the person died in the firing, violence or stampede.

    The protesters even attacked the vehicle of North-East Division Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Bheemashankar Guled. Trying to take control of the situation, the DCP visited the spot and he was stopped by the protesters in front of the police station gate and began pelting stones. Even as the police personnel were escorting the DCP to a safe location, the mob attacked the car and damaged it. They also assaulted the driver of the vehicle.

    The government will take action against those who are responsible behind the attack. Resorting to violence, torching of vehicles is against the law and not a solution to any problems. Any issue can be legally pursued and taken to a logical end. I have already directed the police commissioner to visit the spot and take control of the situation. We have also deployed enough police force in the area and additional KSRP platoons will be deployed:Basavaraj Bommai, Home Minister

    Following the violent protests, Chamarajpet MLA BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan also rushed to the spot and visited KG Halli police station. According to sources, Police Commissioner Kamal Pant also rushed to the spot.

    In the meantime, MLA Akhana Srinivasamurthy released a video appeal and said, « I appeal to all my Muslim brethren to maintain peace and not to get carried away by the rumours and miscreants words. Be it a Hindu or Muslim, we all are equal. Whoever it may be trying to disrupt the harmony, they will be dealt with seriously and will be punished by the police as per the law. But let us not resort to this violence and I request all of you to keep calm. »

    Following the incident, over 600 people stormed the KG Halli police station venting their anger and demanding justice. The incident which occurred at around 9:00 pm went out of control in less than an hour after the mob began to torch the vehicles and vandalise the houses nearby. Gripped by panic, the residents staying in surrounding areas were seen leaving houses along with kids and women to other areas.

    Sources close to the MLA revealed to DH that the mob was reportedly angered over a derogatory Facebook post about religion, alleged to have been posted by MLA’s brother-in-law. A few others also revealed that the post was put up by the MLA’s personal assistant. However, Bengaluru police revealed to DH that they are yet to verify these allegations. The mob took control of the area and sealed five to six crosses barring access to police personnel and fire and emergency service personnel.

    An irate mob on Tuesday late evening attacked the house of Congress MLA from Pulikeshinagar Akhanda Srinivasamurthy and ransacked the house and his home office attached to the house while protesting against a defamatory post against a religion allegedly said to have been posted by the MLAs brother-in-law on Facebook. The mob comprising over 100 people also torched about 15 vehicles besides pelting stones at the MLA’s house and other adjoining houses in Kaval Byrasandra in North-East Bengaluru.
