jaleel-Nausheen Mangaluru: The Karnataka government on Sunday announced Rs 10 lakh each to the families of the two men killed in violent protests against police personals in Mangaluru on December 19.

“I have directed the Deputy Commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district to give Rs 10 lakh each to the two families. The amount will be paid to them today,” Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa told reporters in Bengaluru after visiting the next of kin of those killed in that city.

The Chief Minister said he would order an inquiry into the incident after holding discussions with Home Minister Basvaraj Bommai, who was also present, on the modalities of the probe.

Yediyurappa said the inquiry would be apolitical.

Both Yediyurappa and Bommai urged the people not to believe rumours or get carried away by false information spread in social media.

yediyurappa Bommai said curfew has been lifted in Mangaluru and the situation was now normal.

“There is peace across the state. We will decide how the probe should be carried out in the firing incident,” he said.

Yediyurappa flayed the Congress for creating confusion among people on CAA and misleading them just to tarnish the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi led BJP government at the Centre.

“A few people have created confusion among the masses without telling them the truth.

Despite knowing well that not a single member of the minority community will ever suffer due to this law, they are trying to tarnish the image of the Modi government.

Now the Congress has straightaway hit the road. So it is clear that Congress leaders are behind the unrest,” he said.

He alleged that after Congress chief Sonia Gandhi stated she would lead the movement against the law in Delhi, party leaders were behind “disturbing peace” in the country.

On the restrictions on opposition leaders visiting Mangaluru, Yediyurappa said that was only due to curfew being in place in the city and they were now free to visit.
