Tension in Mysore

By Our Staff Correspondent

MYSORE, DEC. 10. There was tension on Devaraj Urs Road here on Friday when stones were thrown at commercial establishments during the funeral procession of a Yuva Janata Dal (S) leader, Kantharaju. Kantharaju (26) died in a road accident in Hunsur on Thursday. Though most shops on the road had downed their shutters today in view of the death of Kantharaju, a few commercial establishments, including grocery stores, which did business, were attacked during the funeral procession.

A few mourners were seen forcing shopkeepers to down their shutters. Caught unawares, the shopkeepers hastily pulled down their shutters. According to police, Kantharaju, who had been to Hunsur on his motorcycle to meet some relatives, was run over by a bus near the bus stand there.

The body was brought to Devaraja Mohalla, where many Janata Dal (S) leaders, including the former Mayor, D. Dhruvakumar, paid their last respects. Kantharaju was also the Secretary of the Mysore City Hitarakshana Vedike.
