Traffic was actually light today on Old airport road, Rainbow hospital. Must be because some offices have today off for bakrid and a lot of folks might me travelling home for Onam. Hoping that tomorrow is the same story

Heard that TN.STC buses were stoned at Koramangala water tank side. And there are some protest marches also being taken out by various Kannada social/political associations.

Yeah looks like this is crossing the limits. KA people and vehicles have been thrashed in TN, which has resulted in this chaos. So people with TN vehicles be very careful and KA people, going to TN back off.

When did this happen? I just travelled along this route around 10:30 AM and it was all fine.

Traffic was less today all along as colleges were off today along with few offices. Was able to reach office in 40 mins, a distance of 16 kms which otherwise takes around 1 hour on avg.

Saw a few posts on facebook that TN registered vehicles are being stopped at Brigade Metropolis. Seems to spreading fast. Folks with TN registration vehicles might be better off leaving their vehicles at work if possible.

Edit: Looks like it has spread to ORR as well. Saw this post on HVK FB page.

Sporadic disturbances already. Major jam near Mysore Road satellite bus stop. Two TN-registered trucks vandalized in full view of police and RAF by sloganeering mobs, cops did absolutely nothing to stop it.

Same story at Byappanahalli Metro. Another truck being smashed with large stones, pipes and assorted stuff, this time live on air and in full view of cops. Another jam.

There was a mini-truck on fire on the service road near the PES NICE Road exit around noon when I passed that way. Unconfirmed reports that it was vandalized.

Mysore Road is best avoided today, I spent more than an hour just to get past the Deepanjali Naga Metro/Satellite Bus Stand stretch.

Not sure about accuracy - these are whatsapp pics forwarded to me. However, my cousin says her school asked her to pick up the kids as soon as possible.

Location: Nayandalli Mysore road junction, towards Kathriguppe, NICE Road etc

My kid's school closed about an hour early - most schools are closing early. Section 144 has not yet been imposed.
