The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), which called for a state-wide bandh in Karnataka on Friday, will impose a 'rasta roko' between 11 am and 12 pm to protest against the death of a VHP worker during the clashes over Tipu Sultan Jayanti celebrations on Tuesday. 

The VHP organisational secretary has reportedly said that the roads will be blocked for an hour on Friday. 

A VHP activist, DS Kutappa, had died after clashes erupted in Madikeri in Karnataka during protests against the state government's decision to celebrate the 266th birth anniversary of Tipu Sultan.

Madikeri, which was the flashpoint of the clashes, wore a deserted look on Friday after the VHP call for a statewide bandh, according to ANI news agency. 

People were also restricted from coming out on the roads in Mangaluru and other areas in the state, after the Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner ordered prohibition on movement of people, according to The Hindu. The order came after an incident of violence was reported.

VHP protests were also seen in Bengaluru.
