New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday modified its September 5 order and asked Karnataka to release 12,000 cusecs instead of 15,000 cusecs Cauvery water per day to Tamil Nadu till September 20.
The apex court also expressed anguish over "tone and tenor" of Karnataka's plea, says law and order problem can't be ground for not complying with its order.
The order came after the Karnataka government on Saturday evening requested for an urgent hearing over the dispute.
For the last one week violent protests were reported across Karnataka and Tamil over the Cauvery water dispute.
The police have made elaborate security arrangements across Cauvery basin districts including Bengaluru.
The fallout of Cauvery water dispute took a turn on Monday after petrol bombs were hurled at an iconic Udupi restaurant - New Woodlands hotel - in Mylapore, some Tamil Nadu registration number vehicles were also attacked in Karnataka.
A written note was also found at the New Woodlands hotel which warned of more attacks if Tamilians are assaulted in Karnataka.
