Violence hit Bengaluru on Monday as locals protested the Supreme Court order to release 15000 cusecs of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu. Many vehicles were set ablaze by the pro-Kanada activists leading to the suspension of bus service to Tamil Nadu. Mysuru was most affected. Metro service in Bengaluru was also stopped following the violent protests.
Though the apex court, later in the day, modified its September 5 order and asked Karnataka to release a reduced amount of 12,000 cusecs of Cauvery River water per day to Tamil Nadu till September 20 to ameliorate the plight of farmers of the neighbouring state, the protests continued.
