Some MSRTC buses were defaced in Karnataka. Buses from Karnataka were similarly targeted in Maharashtra.
The MSRTC spokesperson said that normal services between Kolhapur and Belagavi via Nipani restarted from Friday afternoon. The long-pending border dispute between the two states revolves mainly around Belagavi, a border district in Karnataka which Maharashtra claims because of its sizable Marathi-speaking population.
