Mangaluru CAA Protest: 2 Killed In Police Firing; Curfew Imposed

At least two people were killed in police firing in Mangaluru on Thursday during the ongoing nationwide protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the draconian NRC.

Reportedly, the police opened fire on protestors near Bunder area of Mangaluru. Both the victims were rushed to a private hospital in the city but were declared brought dead. One of the victims is a resident of Bunder while another victim is a resident of Kandak in the city.

Curfew has been imposed in parts of the city until midnight on Saturday (December 21). Videos from the violence-affected area show police personnel seen firing in the air to disperse people protesting, although people were standing in a distance.

Police also cracked down on protests in other parts of the state, including Hubballi, Kalaburagi, Hassan, Mysuru, Ballary and Bengaluru, detaining hundreds of people.

More details awaited.
