2 killed, 110 injured in clashes over derogatory post in Bangalore”

The violence started after protesters massed outside the politician's house as well as a police station after spotting the post, which local media say has since been deleted. Hundreds also gathered outside the MLA's house and protested. According to reports, the protesters did not allow fire engines to enter the street and to douse the fire.

Police have imposed Section 144 of Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) in Bengaluru to prohibit the assembly of four or more persons in an area, while curfew has been imposed in DJ Halli and KG Halli police station limits. DCP East Bhimashankar Guled's official vehicle too was attacked with stones and sticks. Local media images showed protesters trying to barge into the police building and shouting slogans outside the politician's home.

Police confirmed that Muzamill Pasha and six others from the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) were also detained for questioning, the publication said. Even post midnight, the police force has been largely outnumbered, cornered outside the KG Halli police station. "APPEAL TO ALL TO COOPERATE WITH POLICE TO MAINTAIN PEACE", Kamal Pant, the Bengaluru city police commissioner said in a Twitter post on Wednesday.

The attack on police, media persons and common citizens was unpardonable.

Three people have died in the Indian city of Bangalore after police fired on crowds protesting against an allegedly blasphemous Facebook post.

Meanwhile, R Ashoka, a state minister, told the same news channel that attacks on police and media would not be tolerated. Reporters Ravi and Pradeep have sustained injuries and are receiving treatment at the time of writing. Their cameras were reportedly smashed to stop them from covering the incident. "I humbly request both Hindus & Muslims of the area to stay calm, maintain peace & live in harmony", Leader of opposition Siddaramaiah tweeted. However, indulging in vandalism is not the solution. I have given cops a free hand to handle the situation. Whatever the provocation nobody can take law into their own hands and destroy public property. "Hello, this is Srinivas Murthy from Pulikeshi Nagar".

"I am appealing to my Muslim brethren that we should not resort to violence for the fault committed by some miscreants". "We will investigate the matter thoroughly, whatever the situation is". Whoever has made a mistake, let's teach them a lesson through legal means. We will also be with you. I will ensure that proper legal action is initiated against the perpetrators. "I also see a conspiracy in the way the Facebook post has been put out and it looks to have been done to incite disturbance", he said further.

Reacting to the incident, former Minister and senior Congress leader BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan said: "The incident that happened in Kaval Byrsandra is unfortunate".
