Reflecting a gradual return to normality after the exodus, people from the northeast headed back to Bangalore in special trains from Guwahati. The situation eased in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu on Monday.

Northeast Frontier Railway spokesman Nripen Bhattacharya said in Guwahati that three special trains had left for Bangalore on Sunday, taking back in phases those who had fled fearing attacks after rumours that emerged following the Assam violence. But he could not give the exact number of people who returned to Bangalore.

Government officials said it would take two to three days before all of them returned to Bangalore and other cities such as Pune and Chennai.

It is good to learn that some of NE youngsters who just returned their home city/ state from Karnataka for the sake of safety and security of their lives are going back. This is a good sign and speak volumes for both State and Central governments as their confidence build steps bore fruit. Congratulations for their sincere efforts.
