The Market police have arrested 17 persons in connection with the stone pelting incidents reported at Kamat Galli in the city on Sunday night.

A while later, the miscreants vandalised an autorickshaw at Kamat Galli. Following the incidents, the city police have heightened the security at sensitive areas in the city on Monday.

A group of BJP workers, led by former MLA Abhay Patil, laid a siege to Shahapur police station on Monday morning, demanding action against the miscreants, who were involved in stone pelting incident at Alavanagalli.

The violence-hit areas are limping back to normalcy on Monday.
