After the Cauvery issue prompted problems in the capital city of Bangalore and crippling day-to-day lives for many, public transport has been normalised. Schools have reopened and the city is slowly returning to its normal life.
A total of 100 vehicles were torched and 103 vehicles were damaged, causing a loss of around Rs. 22,000 crore. Almost 40 buses belonging to KPN were torched in its depot, reporting a loss of nearly Rs. 20 crore for the private company.
Protest went out of hand when miscreants even tried to set a police patrol vehicle on fire. The violence also claimed the lives of two people. The fire brigade was constantly busy rushing to places to douse flames around the city.
Police are on constant patrol, along with battalions of Paramilitary forces in many parts of the city to ensure law and order is upheld. Today, however, normal life has returned, and public transport is back to normal helping Bangalore gain its regular life.
