A chunk of north east population fearing possible attacks on them by unknown riots have fled from Bangalore, the capital city of Karnataka. SMSes have been sent to individuals warning to vacant Bangalore by 20 August, north east students who earlier had wished to study in Bangalore are asking the college managements to roll back their admission offers.

At Business Schools which have poor intake this incident has become a major problem as in out of the 25 or 30 students enrolled for the course have, 3 to 5 north east students and they are asking us to refund back their admission fee, it is effecting us in a big way said Academics Director of Business School located near Bangalore University. We have also instructed our working staff (canteen boys, cooks etc) not to move in the city for few days fearing the rumor, he said we shouldn’t willingly seek risk.
In any college north east students are a sizable strength, north east students prefer Bangalore primarily because of the weather condition here, it suits them.
