Bangalore is set to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr festival in peace on Monday marking the end of the month-long Ramadan fast by Muslims amid tight security, as the city gets over the hysteria that caused about 30,000 northeast people to flee during the past three-four days. “The situation in Bangalore is under control with no untoward incident during the last two days. Security has been tightened across the city to ensure a peaceful Eid celebration,” Karnataka chief minister Jagadish Shettar said Sunday in a message greeting Muslims on the festival. With the exodus of northeast people to Guhawati halting on Sunday, the state administration and the railways have heaved a sigh though police continued to be vigilant with enhanced security measures, including deployment of Rapid Action Force (RAF), Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Karnataka State Reserved Police (KSRP) and City Armed Police (CAR).
