Thousands from Assam quit B’lore city

Over 6,000 people hailing from Assam have left Bangalore are arriving the home state on Thursday following rumours of attack by miscreants after the BTAD clashes. According to reports, the people, mostly, students fear safety and security as they received anonymous SMSes saying they would be targeted in retaliatory attacks.
In a scene that suggests utter panic, many people were seen boarding trains out of Bangalore on Wednesday, even after Karnataka's Home Minister R Ashok asked them not to leave the IT city. Karnataka DGP Lalrokhuma Pachuau appealed to the Northeast students to not panic. He said that they should not panic as there is not a single attack anywhere. Railway PRO in Banglore said that there were too many people going to Guwahati forcing them to rush two special trains.
