The agenda of the meeting was to discuss the derogatory Facebook post by Naveen- the relative of local Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivasamurthy. The members decided to take up the matter with the police.

According to Suvarna News, Elyas Muhammad Thumbe – the state president of the SDPI on Wednesday claimed that the inaction of the Bengaluru police to act on Naveen- the person who had allegedly posted derogatory comments, made Muslim angry, who then resorted to violence on the streets of Bengaluru.

Three people were killed and more than 60 police personnel were injured in the stone-pelting and the subsequent riots unleashed by the irate Muslim mobs. At least 10 vehicles, including Innovas of two DCPs, were damaged in front of the stations. The mob also set fire to the vehicles in front of the DJ Halli police station.
