Amid the raging row over the implementation of uniform dress code in educational institutions in Karnataka, students wearing hijab were permitted to enter the campus of Government PU College in the Kundapura area of the Udupi district, on Monday. However, allowing the entry to protesting students, the college administration will seat them in separate classrooms, reported sources.

Earlier today, Karnataka police arrested two people carrying 'lethal weapons' near the Government PU College in Kundapur, where protest over wearing 'Hijab' is ongoing. According to police, three others accused managed to flee. "Both arrested accused hail from Gangolli, a village near Kundapur. A case has been registered," said police.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, Karnataka Education Minister B C Nagesh said students who are unwilling to adhere to the uniform dress code are at liberty to explore other options.

The Bommai government had on Saturday issued a circular banning clothes which disturbed peace, harmony and, law and order in the educational institutions across the state.
