Demanding a stringent law against atrocity on women, members of various organisations submitted a memorandum to Tahsildar K R Bhaskar in Somwarpet on Thursday.

The protesters said “a woman was allegedly raped by a few persons in Devarapura in Kodagu district recently.

There was a need to amend the existing laws, to punish the accused.”The protesters formed a human chain at Puttappa Circle.

Poor response

Bundh call evoked no response in Madikeri. Schools, colleges, government offices and business establishments functioned as usual. Vehicles services were normal. The students had asked political parties not to take part in the protest.
