Violence in Bengaluru over 'derogatory' social media post

Bengaluru, Aug 12 (SocialNews.XYZ) Violent protests broke out in eastern Bengaluru late on Tuesday over a "derogatory message" posted by a politician's relative on social media.

A mob gathered outside Congress legislator Akanda Srinivas Murthy's house where they shouted slogans against the post and also resorted to arson.


Murthy, the legislator from Pulikeshinagar, posted a video on social media asking the protesters to stay calm.

"Please don't resort to violence over the mischievous work of some miscreants," he appealed.

A large mob was also seen opposite the Kadugondanahalli police station in the city.
