Hubli: The Karnataka Police on Thursday took around 30 people in custody here for allegedly violating prohibitory orders amid protests over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

Under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) assembly of four or more people in an area is prohibited. The police have imposed Section 144 in Bengaluru for the next three days.
