Bengaluru Police Commissioner Kamal Pant, in his order, said police felt the need to extend the prohibitory orders to prevent those who indulged in violence on the night of August 11 to possibly destroy the evidence, threaten eye-witnesses and victims. Pant quoted Deputy Commissioner of Bengaluru East division as saying that the investigation was on and many arrests have been made.

“If the prohibitory orders are lifted, the accused persons may go out with their accomplices, destroy the evidence, threaten eyewitnesses, go violent and further damage private and public property, which would pose a law and order problem,” he said.

Keeping these facts in mind, the prohibitory orders have been extended till August 21, Pant said. The order bans more than two people gathering at any place, carrying of any kind of weapons and convening any public meetings Violators would be prosecuted, he said.

Three people were killed after police opened fire to quell a mob that went on a rampage in D J Halli and adjoining areas on Tuesday night over an inflammatory social media post allegedly put out by P Naveen, a relative of Pulakeshi Nagar MLA R Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy.
