Protests against Padmaavat turn violent in Ahmedabad

Most theatre owners in Guj have decided against screening 'Padmaavat': Dy CM

The Supreme Court may have allowed the release of Padmaavat on January 25 but Gujarat deputy chief minister, Nitin Patel, appealed to the people to boycott the film and maintain peace in the state.

"We will take strict action against the perpetrators". Meanwhile, national president of Karni Sena, Lokendra Kalvi, was in Gujarat over the ongoing protests against the release of Padmaavat. "I will seek report from city police as to how many policemen were deployed at these multiplexes", Jadeja said. Speaking to journalists in Rajkot, Kalvi warned movie buffs and said that if they are keen to watch the movie, they should watch it on the internet 10 days after of its release. Slamming the central and state governments, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal says that if the government can't ensure the safety of a film in their respective states, how can they expect investors to invest in a business there.

"If screening of the film is not stopped, members of our community will not stop from demolishing screens in theatres", Kalvi had said. "Therefore, do not compel us to take to the path of violence", he said.

SHOPPING MALL ATTACKED: The Haryana Police on Monday registered a case and started an investigation into an attack on a portion of the Kessal Mall in Haryana's Kurukshetra town, around 100 km from here.

Demonstrations were held outside cinema theatres and on roads in several towns across the State, where the protesters raised slogans and demanded an apology from Mr. Bhansali.

"We have detained around 50 supporters of Karni Sena so far in different parts of Mumbai". "As the Supreme Court has allowed its release, this there is tension in the state".

With less than 24 hours left for the release of Bollywood movie Padmaavat, protests continued in various places in the country including Bhopal, Gurgaon, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad.

"Though we have assured police protection to cinema owners, they have informed us that none of them will screen the film on January 25".
