Bangalore, Sept 20: Karnataka must release 6000 cusecs of water every day to Tamil Nadu, until September 27, when the Supreme Court will hear the case again.

The Supreme Court today also directed the central government to set up the Cauvery Management Board within the next four weeks.

The Cauvery Supervisory Committee had ruled on Monday that Karnataka should release 3000 cusecs every day until September 30.

The verdict comes as tensions in Karnataka still persist over the long-drawn water dispute between the two states. The border between the two states at Attibele was shut down for all vehicular transport on Tuesday morning.
Section 144 has been imposed in Bangalore city till September 25.

In Mandya, which has been the epicenter for the agitation, District Collector S Ziaullah declared a holiday for all educational institutions on September 20 as a precautionary measure.
