All schools and colleges in Karnataka’s Kalaburagi will remain closed on Thursday as Section 144 will be imposed from the morning, District Commissioner Sharath said.

DCP Kalaburagi stated that Section 144, which prohibits the gathering of four or more people, will be imposed in the city from Thursday morning till December 21 late night.

Police Commissioner MN Nagaraj on Wednesday said that no ‘bandh’ will be allowed in Kalaburagi city today in view of the recruitment exams of different departments and to maintain law and order in the region.

“No bandh will be allowed in Kalaburagi city tomorrow in view of the recruitment exams of different departments and also to maintain law and order, communal harmony in the city,” Nagaraj said.

His comments came after a bandh was called by a consortium of Left-wing and Muslim organisations in the city against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019. The CAA grants citizenship to non-Muslims of Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh who fled religious persecution and arrived in India until December 31, 2014.
