Bengaluru was in some uneasy calm on Tuesday, a day after one person was killed in police firing on and curfew imposed in 16 areas after protestors turned violent in Karnataka over releasing more Cauvery river water to Tamil Nadu.
Even though colleges, government and private offices, schools and banks have holiday on account of Eid festival, several offices, which are working, advised their staff to work from homes due to tension in the city.
Several markets, shops, malls, hotels, eateries and commercial establishments are closed due to fear of being attacked by protesters.
Taxis, buses and other public transports are also off the roads. Passengers coming out of railway stations and airport had a harrowing time in reaching homes or workplaces.
A Rapid Action Force platoon staged a flag-march in the city's north-west suburb to instil confidence in the people that the situation is under control.
