However, on Wednesday, barring a few incidents  of stone throwing and a  mild lathicharge resorted to by the police to disburse a group that had gathered at a market area, no untoward incidents were reported.  

Leader of pro-Hindu organisations Ashok Muttinamutt, Srirama Sena’s Basavaraj Siddlingappanavar and Sangh Parivar’s Nagaraj Hadli were arrested at Vallabhai Circle, as they objected to police announcement asking everybody to resume their business. Many members of the City Municipal Council, including CMC Vice-President Jayant Kurandawad were detained by the police, as they staged a protest at Basaveshwar Circle, violating the prohibitory order.  

Schools and colleges in the town remained closed. Though buses and autos plied as usual, roads wore a deserted look.
