Amid escalating tension in Karnataka over the Cauvery water dispute, the Centre today assured all assistance to the state to maintain law and order and ensure peace.

“I am in touch with the Chief Secretary of Karnataka and whatever help is required will be provided,” Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi told reporters here.

Violence erupted in parts of Karnataka, including Bengaluru, Mysore and Mandya, after the Supreme Court ordered the state to release 12,000 cusecs of Cauvery water every day to Tamil Nadu till September 20, modifying its previous order that directed it to release 15,000 cusecs till September 16.
