Prohibitory orders in parts of City
Bangalore, DH News Service:

Frazer Town, KG Halli, DJ Halli, Banaswadi, Hennur, Nagawara, Tannery Road and Sampigehalli looked like a police barrack as 5,000 armed menhad been deployed in the area.

Tension gripp-ed the communally sensitive Frazer Town and KG Halli here, following a murder and stone throwing incidents on Thursday night.

The City police were forced to promulgate prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code on Friday in East Bangalore.

Police arranged the bandobast fearing further communal flare up on Friday.
Trouble started in KG Halli on Thursday evening at about 6.30 pm when the participants of a Ganesha procession approached near a religious place of a minority community shouting slogans. At that time, the members of the minority community were offering prayers after breaking their Ramzan fast.

The sloganeering irked them and they reportedly asked those in the procession to stop shouting. When they did not oblige, stones were allegedly pelted at the procession, triggering violence in the area.

KG Halli inspector T Rangappa rushed to the spot and tried to calm the situation. In the meantime, additional forces were also dispatched to the spot. The flare-up continued till Thursday midnight.
