Mysuru: Following the denial of permission by police to take out protests against Citizenship Amendment Act ( CAA), about 30 activists laid siege to Police Commissioner’s office in the city on December 19.

Anti- Citizenship Amendment Act activists stage protest on the premises of police Commissioner’s office in Mysuru.

The permission given for the protests earlier has been withdrawn in the wake of clamping of prohibitory orders under Section 144 CrPC in the city till December 21.

When the Police Commissioner K T Balakrishna invited the protesters for a talk, they insisted the police Commissioner to come.

Police Commissioner K T Balakrishna holds a meeting with activists. DCPs A N Prakash Gowda and B T Kavita are seen.

Later, a meeting was arranged at the conference hall, where the Commissioner explained that prohibitory orders were issued on the basis of credible intelligence reports. Hence the permission for protests was withdrawn. However there is no restriction on submitting memorandum.

S R Hiremath of Samaja Parivartana Samudaya said “We have been protesting at police Commissioner’s office to condemn the bid to curtail our rights by denying permission”.

Communist leader Basavaraj warned of staging a mega protest at Town Hall on December 24.

Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha President Badagalapura Nagendra said ” Withdrawal of permission is a blot on the democracy. There are instances of protesting in a peaceful way in the past too”.

Prof Shabbeer Mustafa attached to Swaraj India suspected political motivation behind withdrawing the protest.

DCPs A N Prakash Gowda ( Law and order) and B T Kavita ( Crime and traffic) were present.
