Prohibitory orders were in place in Bengaluru for three consecutive days from December 19 to 21.

The Karnataka High Court rapped the government for imposing the curbs after the police detained historian Ramchandra Guha and others at a protest.


    The situation in Bengaluru and other parts of the state was also peaceful with no major protests taking place.

    The city had witnessed large-scale protests on Thursday. Eminent historian and writer Ramachandra Guha termed the Citizenship Amendment Act as "immoral" and "against the spirit of the Constitution" and said a wise and just government would withdraw it.
