Justifying the death of two protesters in police firing Mangaluru, BJP National Secretary H Raja on Friday said police had to resort to firing since the agitators were threatening to kill people.

"There was no option left for the police. We'll reply with stone if a stone is thrown at us and our reply to a gun will also be through a gun," he added.
