COIMBATORE: Eighteen buses were damaged in stone-pelting by unidentified men in Coimbatore and Tiruppur districts of Tamil Nadu on Friday morning. Police said masked motorcycle-bound men had hurled crude petrol bombs at two places of worship in R S Puram in Coimbatore.

Tension prevailed in the districts after Hindu Munnani spokesperson C Sasikumar was hacked to death by a four-member gang at Subramaniyampalayam in Coimbatore district on Thursday night.

With unrest building up every hour, Coimbatore was headed for a complete bandh as schools, shops, commercial establishments, small industries shutting down.

A 500-member strong gathering of Hindu outfit members started marching towards Big Bazaar Street police station from the government hospital here after information that ten of their members had been held up there for asking shops to close. Sensing trouble, police commissioner A Amalraj intercepted them and pacified them by saying that the 10 members had been released.

While returning, the group pelted at a government bus. Soon, almost all the government and private buses went off roads. Autorickshaws too were not plying anywhere in the city leaving several people walk for kilometres together to reach their destinations.
