According to the FIR lodged by the police, hundreds of people attacked police stations with weapons. The riot-affected areas are now in a peaceful state and a contingent of rapid task force carried out a flag march.
The minister said that four people belonging to SDPI have been arrested in this regard and investigation is on.
Bommai said, “There is peace in the KG Halli and DJ Halli areas since yesterday and no untoward incident has taken place … New information is coming out as the investigation progresses.” I cannot share everything with you, but I will share it with the media in the coming days. “
He told reporters here that according to the information and video footage so far, the role of SDPI is coming out. We are collecting more information in this regard and investigating it in depth.
The SDPI on Wednesday denied its role in the violence and attributed the police inaction to the violence.
