#Karnataka bandh: Cabs, autos go off road, schools, colleges shut in Bengaluru


The statewide bandh called in Karnataka by pro-Kannada organisations to protest against the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu has begun in the state. The dawn-to-dusk protest is likely to affect normal life as transport services, hotels and other facilities are likely to be hit. 

Protest rallies have been planned in different parts of the state, including the state capital Bengaluru. All educational institutions in Bengaluru will remain closed and restrictions under section 144 have been imposed in the city. 

Elaborate security arrangements have been made across the state and a large number of police personnel have been deployed.
