Udupi: In the wake of the weekend curfew, Deputy Commissioner (DC) G Jagadeesha issued a clear directive to bus operators not to run vehicles on Saturday July 3 and Sunday July 4. However, it appears that both private bus operators and KSRTC personnel disobeyed the orders on Saturday and ran the buses.
Though some private buses stopped running later in the morning, KSRTC and several express buses are still running on a regular weekday schedule.
The instruction of DC Jagadeesha was ignored by KSRTC. Mangaluru, Shivamogga, Agumbe, Karkala, and Kundapur had bus services.
