Bengaluru: Metro takes a beating of bandh; stops plying
Bengaluru, July 30: After commotion prevailed at two metro stations on Saturday following the call for a state-wide bandh, the city's rail corporation stopped services. As many as 30 activists from pro-Kannada organisations brought tokens and attempted to ransack the Mysuru road metro station.
An official from Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) told OneIndia: "30 members bought tokens from ticket issuing counter. They entered the station raising slogans and attempted to ransack stations in Mysuru road and MG Road.''
However, the security at both the stations was present. The police succeeded in forcing the protesters out from the terminals. "On a precautionary note we have stopped rail services,'' the official added. The services may kick-start once the deadline for the bandh is over.
