The railway police have said that all precautionary measures have been taken to ensure that trains run as per schedule on Thursday, despite a 'rail roko' agitation being called by pro-Kannada activists led by Vatal Nagaraj.

The activists say that at least one lakh volunteers will take part in the protest across the state, but the railway police said they are prepared to handle the situation and ensure that trains ran as per schedule.

Any person facing issues can call the toll-free number 1800-425-1363 for assistance.

Replying to queries posted by passengers, the railway police said security measures were in place to ensure that railways functioned normally.

Meanwhile, Benglaluru was limping back to normal under heavy security on Wednesday after Monday's violence and curfew and prohibitory orders on Tuesday.

Shops and establishments functioned as usual. Government schools and colleges functioned normally. Many private schools that had remained closed on Wednesday, too, are expected to resume classes on Thursday.

The police lifted the curfew imposed on Tuesday in 16 police station limits, but Section 144 remains in force throughout the city, which prohibits the assembly of more than five people at a place.

Police commissioner N.S. Meghrik said the prohibitory orders were in place to prevent any untoward incident.

Mandya, the epicentre of the protests, and Mysuru, too, were peaceful on Wednesday.
