The Manaveeyam road, a street in the state capital known for hosting food stalls, street theatre, exhibitions, and art works, witnessed stone pelting on the police in the wee hours of Monday for stopping use of loudspeakers post midnight.

The violence broke out following the police direction to stop the use of loudspeakers after midnight, an officer of Museum police station said.
