The Bengaluru police nabbed yet another accused from Hyderabad in connection with the August 11 violence by a section of people in the tech city.

A joint team of Bengaluru police and Central Crime Branch (CCB) nabbed the accused identified as Mudassir Ahmed from Hyderabad on Sunday, reported Decca Herald.

He had reportedly fled the city after the riots and was nabbed by a joint team of eastern Bengaluru police and the Central Crime Branch (CCB).

He is alleged to be one of the main conspirators who reportedly instigated the violence in the city and fled after the violence in a bid to avert arrest.

Last week, the Karnataka had decided to approach the High Court seeking its approval for the appointment of an officer to assess the damage happened to properties in Bengaluru city during the rioting and violence.

The state government has made it clear that the damage would be recovered from the accused in the violence and nobody would be spared in the violence.

Three persons were killed and several injured including about 50 cops in the violence. Private and public vehicles including those of police were set on fire by the enraged mob.

The state government also slapped the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) against the people who instigated the violence indicating that the accused will face tough action in the coming days.

Over 240 people have been arrested in connection with the violence and ransacking including several people allegedly associated with the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI).

The violent protest took place in front of DJ Halli and KG Halli police stations after the relative of a Congress MLA posted a controversial social media provoking a section of people.
