BANGALORE, FEB. 26. A group of Kannada activists applied black paint on the boards of some 20 shops on Brigade Road early on Saturday in protest against the non-use of Kannada on them.

According to Brigade's Shops and Establishments Association, the activists came in two trucks around 2 a.m. and painted the English boards with black paint.

Such an act, the association said, had caused a loss of around Rs. 20 lakhs to the shops.
