Krishnaraja Sagar police have booked a criminal case under certain provisions of Indian Penal Code against 100 unnamed farmers, who gathered at the Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) reservoir near Srirangapatna on October 3 to show their disapproval of the Cauvery River Authority’s recommendation of sharing water with Tamil Nadu, for allegedly violating prohibitory orders.

The farmers have been accused of damaging public property, obstructing public servants from discharging their duties, assaulting police personnel besides disobeying orders and violating the prohibitory orders under certain provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code.

However, so far no arrests have been made.
