Padmaavat Row: Fearing of goons, few schools remain close

Protesters block roads ahead of Padmavati release Padmaavat violence: Haryana govt to provide high security to theatres
Derrick Tucker | 28 January, 2018, 00:13

Speaking over tense atmosphere surmounting in several districts over Padmaavat release, one of the parent said, "As of now it's peaceful here but it is indeed disturbing that in Gurugram some schools are shut as preemptive measures due to protests". The bus was carrying more than a dozen children from class nursery to class 12th and some teachers of GD Goenka School, and around 3 p.m. when it was attacked by a mob.

He said the police have been adequately deployed to meet any exigency.

Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi said the Wednesday attack on a school bus in Gurugram in Haryana was "more saddening and shameful" that showed how the Modi and the Haryana governments had "failed to maintain law and order". The Ahmedabad Police arrested 48 people from various locations under the act of rioting for unleashing violence in the city on Wednesday.

"Because of the sections imposed in this, the accused will find it hard to get bail", he said. "He said he planned to throw the red power, suspected to be some chemical, on the cinema screen after mixing it with water to prevent the movie's screening", a senior police officer told IANS. "I appeal to protest peacefully". Why this silence? Who is responsible for the law and order?

Speaking to ANI, the Haryana Minister said, "Although Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, earlier seeing the public sentiments, had directed the theatres to not release the film but respecting the Supreme Court's order, he had also said whichever theatres will be showing the flick, they will be provided with high security".

A PIL was today filed in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, seeking action against Karni Sena activists for "disturbing peace" in the wake of the release of "Padmaavat".

"With Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film 'Padmaavat" s release, protests led by Rajput communities and other fringe outfits took a violent form in various parts of the country, yesterday.
