Karnataka: Over 100 history-sheeters detained ahead of bandh today

News Agencies | Updated on: 5 December 2020, 10:34 IST

More than a hundred history-sheeters were detained in the wake of a Karnataka bandh called by pro-Kannada organisations on Saturday, according to the DCP (West), Bengaluru.

The bandh was called by pro-Kannada organisations, led by Vatal Nagraj group, against the state government's decision to form a Maratha Development Authority and allot it Rs 50 crore.


Meanwhile, people seemed cautious to step outside with metro stations wearing deserted looks in Bengaluru.

Yesterday, Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa had appealed to the groups not to call the bandh as it caused inconveniences to others.

"I promise to take all sections of society together," Yediyurappa said.
