A Muslim boy followed over rumour

Members of a hindutva group got a tip-off from someone about a Muslim boy and Hindu girl travelling together on a bus bound for Bengaluru. They immediately followed the bus and made an attempt to stop it at Farangipet but were unsuccessful. But when the bus reached B.C.Road junction a large crowd that had gathered there managed to intercept the bus. The activists boarded the bus and upon checking found that the boy and girl were seated separately. When the police got the information they rushed to the spot and escorted the bus to the station. As soon as they discovered that there was no basis to the rumour about the couple the activists were given a warning and the bus was allowed to go with police escort.
