Protesters slit their hands

Protesters slit their hands

Four pro-Kannada activists slit they hands, using blade, during the Mahadayi protest held in front of the railway station here on Wednesday.

When the protesters tried to enter the railway station, the police stopped them. While arguing with the police, Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene district unit president Vijaykumar and three others slit their hands, and said, "we will shed our blood, but will not stop the protest seeking Mahadayi water."

Assistant Commissioner of Police (South) N B Sakri and others immediately shifted them to a police vehicle and sent them to KIMS for treatment.

Window glass broken

A window glass pane at MP Pralhad Joshi's office near Chitaguppi hospital was broken, when pro-Kannada activists staged a protest there. The office was locked when protesters went there, and they tried to kick the door open. Slogans against Mr Joshi were also raised.

Jaya Karnataka and Karnataka Sangrama Sene members tried to picket Mr Joshi's residence also, but the police stopped them.

The protesters also forced close a few banks at Keshwapur, while material at a coffee shop near Court Circle were ransacked as the shop was open.
