Hubballi: Police sources said, rubber bullets were fired at the mob in order to control them last night.
The police also said that they had opened fire on 13 rounds of fire in the air and lobbed tear gas.
The mob was so furious that if the bullets were not fired in the air, they could have entered the station and could have easily destroyed the station. A police inspector, in order to prevent them from entering the station compound, fired 10 rounds of bullets, and later another police inspector fired three rounds. And soon, some police fired rubber bullets and lobbed tear gas, said the police.
Early in the morning, HDMC civic workers cleared around one tractor full of stones and around 300 pairs of slippers, said an HDMC officer to the media outside the police station
