Padmaavat Row: Frenzied mob attacks school bus in Gurgaon

They were allegedly protesting against Padmaavat's release, scheduled for 25 January.

Suraj Pal Amu told ANI, "A school bus was attacked".

A day earlier, a mob had attacked a bus carrying more than a dozen children in Gurugram.

He added that the situation is now under control.

"The BJP's use of hatred and violence is setting our entire country on fire", Gandhi said in his tweet hours after a video of scared children crouching in the school bus targeted by hooligans protesting the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie prompted nationwide outrage on Wednesday.

Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Wednesday said that the state government will provide high-level of security to all the movie theatres where the controversial film "Padmaavat" will be screened.

At least 24 people have been detained by Gurgaon Police today, including 13 who have been apprehended for burning a Haryana Roadways bus in Bhondsi.

"We have ordered the administration and the police to immediately tighten the security across the state", he added.

Karni Sena goons protesting against the film had also damaged two state roadways buses in Jaipur and blocked a road in the city's Kalwar area, while scores of activists were held in Mumbai and Nashik.

Significantly, a few days back, Haryana Director General of Police, B S Sandhu had cautioned the troublemakers asserting that nobody would be allowed to disrupt peace in the state. "No order to close school or colleges or bars (has been given)", he said.

In Gujarat, theatre owners said the film would not be screened in any of the multiplexes or single screens till the row was resolved. All deputy commissioners and superintendents of the police are asked to ensure that no problem arises in the screening of the movie, said he.

Striking a defiant pose, the Karni Sena leader said that he and other outfit leaders may be arrested and bullets fired but the protest would continue in states like Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
