Vehicular movement along the Tamil Nadu-Karnataka border at Jujuvadi in Hosur, which was stopped due to violence in Karnataka over the Cauvery water issue, resumed on Wednesday after 29 days.

Lorries, cars and other vehicles bearing Karnataka registration numbers entered Jujuvadi on the Tamil Nadu side, while vehicles with Tamil Nadu registration numbers entered Attibele on the Karnataka side from Wednesday morning. However, bus services remain suspended, as Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation officials said a decision on resuming the services could be taken only after monitoring the situation.

Inter-State movement of buses remained suspended since September 6 and services were operated only for a day on September 11. As services remained suspended, people from both the sides had to walk for a km and cross the border to board buses.

Senior police officials said protection is given to vehicles that enter both the States and normality is expected to resume soon.
