Schools and colleges in most

parts of the state also declared a holiday, with several examinations being rescheduled in some cases.

A group of protesters tried to disrupt rail services by entering the Bengaluru's Sangolli Rayanna railway station but police stopped and detained them.

Protests were also staged in front of Manyata Embassy Business Park, a software technology park in the city,

While the film industry and multiplexes decided to remain shut, hospitals and clinics are expected to function as usual, with the Indian Medical Association office bearers stating that they will be extending moral support by wearing a black band.

Though hotels, restaurants and eateries were opened in some areas, owners said they may have to stop their services depending on the situation.
