Now The Government is pointing out Pakistani elements for this trouble.

In an effort to instill confidence among the northeasterners living in Bangalore, deputy chief minister incharge of home R Ashoka himself will be leading night patrolling in the sensitive areas of the city ahead of Eid.
Neelasandra, Shivajinagar, Anepalya, Koramangala are some of the areas where large population of northeasterners are concentrated in the city. “Night patrolling is to instill confidence among them and send a message that government is with them and the people have nothing to fear about,” Ashoka told TOI on Sunday. Night patrolling by the minister is expected to continue for couple of days.
