In a fallout of the violence at the Dr Ambedkar law college in Chennai on Thursday, miscreants burnt a bus in Madurai and damaged 10 buses in the Southern districts late last night, police said.

While a Madurai-Coimbatore bus was set ablaze in the city, 10 buses were damaged and some passengers injured in stone pelting in the communally sensitive southern districts. Fire service personnel from Coimbatore rushed to the spot and doused the flames.

The buses were attacked at Arapalayam, Villapura, Keeraithurai, Terkuvasal, Karimedu and Nagamalai Puthukottai between 2100 hrs and 2200 hrs, they said.

Officials said bus services resumed after 0700 hrs today to these areas.
