Mangalore/ Madikeri, Nov 13 (ANI): Following the Tipu Sultan row, a state wide shutdown was observed in Karnataka on Friday. The bandh called by the Bajrang Dal and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad was observed with full effect in Mangalore as the markets sported a deserted look. Vehicles including buses and auto rickshaws are off the roads in the state, the streets were almost empty and schools and colleges have been given holidays. The shutdown call was given after a youth named Harish was stabbed to death near BC Road on the night of Thursday, and also to protest against the death of a VHP leader in Madikeri during Tipu Jayanti celebrations. With section 144 being enforced for three days, only some private vehicles are moving around and this had affected the general public. Tight security is in place as police vehicles have been moving around the city, warning the people through the public address system mounted on vehicles not to form crowds or take out demonstrations.
