PM speaks to Karnataka CM

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has told Karnataka Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar and Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde to ensure the safety of people from the northeast in the state.

“The prime minister spoke to the chief minister last night. He also spoke to Shinde,” an official in the Prime Minister's Office told IANS.

A large number of northeastern students fled Bangalore by special trains late Wednesday and early Thursday following rumours they would be attacked to avenge the ethnic violence in Assam.
