Padmaavat violence: Haryana govt to provide high security to theatres

Multiplex Association says its members will not screen 'Padmaavat' in Rajasthan, Gujarat, MP and Goa

A school bus carrying students was attacked by protesters in Gurugram, adjacent to national capital Delhi, as protests turned violent in several states a day before the release of "Padmaavat". They have done all sorts of efforts, many of them even violent ones, to not let the film release. "The way stones were pelted on a school bus, no one is going to forgive that", Congress Spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said in a video message.

Rajput Karni Sena has been against the film ever since the days it was being shot.

Karni Sena leader Surajpal Amu was detained today from his residence by Gurgaon police for his inflammatory remarks against Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. "We have never run away.", he said, adding those who pelted stones were not known to anyone "and hence Karni Sena was being blamed". "Fortunately, we were able to ensure the safety of the children, which was our priority", he tells ANI.

As police tried to disperse them, the duty magistrate gave an order to fire in the air. It was barely 10 minutes after the bus left the school on Sohna Road that the 30 students, four teachers and four support staff found themselves surrounded by protesters brandishing sticks, rods, stones and bricks.




A mobile phone video that captured the terrible moments inside the bus as it was attacked showed the youngest children cry out with fear. The driver showed a great presence of mind, driving away from the attackers and taking the bus to a safe location.

"There are no reports, in the last 24 hours, of any unpleasant incident, attacks, or arson".

Dozens of protests have been reported from across at least six states. The school bus was so wrecked that the seats were full of shards of glass. "If the Khattar government can not enforce the rule of law it must resign", the Congress leader added.

The Congress has demanded the resignation of Haryana's BJP government for failing to control violence.
