Bengaluru: Karnataka JD(S) in on Wednesday extended complete support to the state government in establishing peace in violence-hit parts of the city and demanded immediate action against the culprits. Leaders of both the parties have said that there are reports raising apprehensions that this could have been a ”pre-planned conspiracy”.

JD(S) patriarch H D Deve Gowda in a tweet condemning the violence, has requested the government to take ”merciless” action against those involved.

Gowda’s son and former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy too demanded action against those indulging in “goondaism” and taking the law into their hands in the name of religion.

“No religion or community is above the law and anyone who does not respect the law of the land should be punished. Government by taking strict action should ensure that such incidents don’t repeat,” he tweeted.

He also said that the incident looks like a ”pre-planned conspiracy.”

At least three people were killed and scores of others wounded in connection with arson and violence in certain parts of the city last night over a social media post allegedly by a relative of Pulakeshinagar Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy.

Nearly 110 people allegedly involved in the violence and the accused who had posted the communal post have been arrested.
