The Karnataka Police on 10 November detained more than 150 Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers in Hubli in wake of Tipu Jayanti.
Speaking to ANI, Renuka Sukumar, DCP Karnataka said, "Have detained more than 150 BJP workers in Hubli protesting against Tipu Jayanti celebration."
The BJP workers were protesting against the Karnataka government's decision to celebrate Tipu Jayanti in the state.
"At present everything is peaceful in Hubli. Tipu Jayanti is being celebrated," added Sukumar.
Earlier in the day while protesting against the celebration, BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said that the Congress-led government is worried about Tipu Sultan instead of the state's public.
After witnessing major clash in 2015 in the state over the celebrations of Tipu Sultan Jayanti, the Karnataka Government last year decided to make the event an annual affair.
