Increasingly people don't seem to be too afraid of attacking policemen. From DH:
The policemen tried to enter the building. Out came the ladies, who threw chilli powder at the men in khaki.Is it desperation or a belief that they will be bailed out by their political sponsors?
Undeterred, the police began climbing the stairs only to be attacked by some youngsters with choppers. Central Crime Branch inspector Nanjundegowda was injured in the act. Later, a few more policemen trooped in and the boys were taken into custody and weapons seized. But none of the women were touched.
