The famous kannad film actor Dr. Rajkumar expired today. He died following a cardiac arrest on Wednesday afternoon in Ramaiah Hospital in Bangalore. The 78-year-old actor had made his debut in the film world nearly five decades ago and is a revered figure in the state. About four years back he had also been kidnapped by Verappan.

There seems to be quite an agigation in local crowd today in Bangalore. Most of the offices of IT companies, the stronghold of India's outsourcing industry, closed early today due to fear about riots on the streets. There is no clue today about what tomorrow might bring, but people are hopeful things would be normal tomorrow.
