The district administration has clamped prohibitory orders till Friday (March 5).
The violence had broken out when 'Ganga Abhisheka' (cleansing of Shivling with water of holy river Ganga) and worshipping was performed to the Raghava Chaitanya Shivling, which is located in the premises of historical Ladle Mashak Dargah on Maha Shivratri. When the worship was performed, one group suddenly started stone pelting and resorted to violence.
The police are hunting down miscreants in connection with the incident and more arrests are likely to be made. The police have seized piles of stones, rods, sticks from the terraces of the houses. The police are investigating the conspirators behind the planning of violence.
The locals have alleged that due to police atrocities and raids in the wee hours, an 83-year-old woman is died. However, Isha Panth, SP, Kalaburagi, clarified that the aged woman died due to age related factors and it was falsely propagated that she died due to police assault. She further stated that the situation has been reined in and precautions have been taken to ensure law and order situation in the city.
However, the tense situation still continues and elaborate security arrangements have been made in the city.
