BANGALORE: Even as the police grappled around with justifications for their failure in initiating action against the advocates who turned violent on Friday, the State Intelligence Department has now revealed that they had indeed informed the Police and the Home Departments about such an attack a day in advance. They had further insisted on deployment of forces in huge numbers at the City Civil Court where former Tourism Minister Janardhana Reddy was to be produced for a trial.
