The Mysuru-Bengaluru Highway witnessed heavy traffic jams on the evening of Saturday as many people were in a hurry to reach their destinations hours before the Sunday Curfew was imposed.
Also, the 6 pm to 5 am dusk to dawn curfew imposed in Mysuru forced people to leave their workplaces early.
Many stretches of the Highway near Columbia Asia Hospital, Siddalingapura and below the Varuna Aqueduct were filled with vehicles. There was a heavy movement of vehicles towards Mysuru city too.
Picture below shows the scene of the road during Sunday Curfew where there was literally no traffic, except for the movement of vehicles that supply essential commodities.
At a few places, Police had set up check points to strictly enforce the curfew.
