Vehicles with Karnataka registered number plates are being attacked in Tamil Nadu, and vice-versa in the neighbouring state.

On September 18, Bengaluru resident Joyal Bindu posted a Facebook status that has gone a long way in restoring people's faith in society, amidst this needless violence.

They waited for a few more cars to join (16 in total), as the cops led them safely past the Karnataka border.

According to Bindu, different police vans took over the motorcade at various check posts along the route. It took around eight vans to take them the whole way.

"One of the Policemen told me that they did not want to take any chances. The route in general was safe, but the way TN Police ensured extra safety is beyond our comprehension. I have never experienced anything like this in my life. I hope my experience will change the way people think about police," Bindu told BuzzFeed.
