Couple of days after violence broke out in Bengaluru in protest against Karnataka releasing more Cauvery river water to Tamil Nadu, the city was back to normal on Wednesday.

 
With taxis, buses, autos and metro rail resuming service, people were seen commuting to workplaces and other places of their destinations.
 
Passengers going to or alighting at railway junctions and bus terminals in the city and the airport on the outskirts are able to get transport as trains, inter-state buses and flights are operating on schedule.
 
"Security across the city remains tight and ban order under section 144 of the CrPC on assembling of more than five persons at public places and populated areas continues till further order to ensure peace and prevent any untoward incident," said Police Commissioner N.S. Megharikh.
 
Most of the schools and colleges have declared holiday for Onam festival and remained shut in curfew-hit areas to avoid inconvenience.
 
"Educational institutions, offices and businesses will remain shut in curfew-bound areas as a precautionary measure," Megharikh told reporters.
 
Situation at Mandya and Mysuru in the river basin remained under control amid peaceful protests by farmers, traders and youth against releasing water to the lower riparian state.
