Default Tension in Bangy

Folks

Just heard that there has been some form of communal unrest in and around Bangalore North.
Areas : RT Nagar, Munireddy Palya , NandiDurga Road etc.

Kindly ensure that you avoid these areas and reach home safe.

PS : This thread is to only warn people staying around those areas and for those getting back home from work. Lets not bring in any discussion about the cause for the same.Stay safe !!

There is unrest but its under control, I spoke to a reliable source who works with a leading newspaper in Bangalore.

JC Road(Munnireddy Palya), Nandidurg Road, Coles Park area are sensitive.

Update :

Lots of rumours flying around about the riots, I myself got calls asking to shut (We are on Infantry Road).

Fact remains that everything is under control and the Commissioner has also lifted all road blocks / curfew.

This is the advisory that was just issued by our company...

"Dear all,
There are reports about communal riots in Shivajinagar, TV tower, JC Nagar, JC Road and Hebbal. The police are out in force to maintain law and order.
The situation is under control, however, there are restricted movements on certain roads in the above mentioned areas.
Employees traveling under own arrangements need to be cautious on the roads"

Be careful guys.
