    The DCP did not arrange for food for the arrested activists: Narayana Gowda

    KRV activists protested outside the Cubbon Park Police Station

The protests organised by activists of the Kannada Rakshana Vedike (KRV) in Bengaluru on December 27th took a violent turn in some regions. Boards that did not follow the BBMP norms of maintaining a ratio of 60 to 40 between Kannada and other languages were torn and stone pelting was witnessed. The demonstrations might continue on December 28th as well.  

The Chief Minister of Karnataka Siddaramaiaha while addressing a gathering in Kolar spoke about the incident. “Whoever it may be, I have ordered the police to take strict action against those operating outside the boundaries of the law,” he said. 

Many activists including the president of KRV Narayana Gowda have been arrested. The Chikkajala police arrested Narayana Gowda late at night. Including a charge pertaining to obstruction of public servant in discharging duty, 2 other violations have been cited for the arrest. “Several activists who have come all the way from Bidar and Chamarajanagar have been subject to Lathi Charge by the police. They have sustained injuries on their hands and legs. The DCP did not arrange for food for the arrested activists. DCP Laxmi Prasad’s conduct reeked of arrogance. Being in a position of power does not grant him the authority to look down upon Kannada activists,” Narayana Gowda stated. 

A case was registered against 15 KRV activists by the Cubbon Park Police over violence that unfolded in the Lavelle Road. KRV activists protested outside the Cubbon Park Police Station. A medical check up of the arrested activists was conducted.
