Bengaluru, Sept. 19: As the Cauvery Supervisory Committee (CSC) meeting got underway in Delhi, police beefed up security in and around Bengaluru to prevent a repeat of last week's violent protests.

The CSC is expected to decide the total quantum of water Karnataka has to release to Tamil Nadu for its samba crop season, even as Karnataka is pressing the committee to send a fact-finding team to both states to understand the water situation before it makes its decision.
