  • Bus Fire

A Haryana Roadways bus was set ablaze and another vandalised in Bhondsi area in Gurugram district by a group of around 50 men, alleged to be Shri Rajput Karni Sena supporters, on Wednesday to protest against the movie Padmaavat.

The Congress President also condemned the violence against children by the mobs which have been protesting the release of the controversial film. The protesters allegedly belonged to Rajput group Karni Sena. Even after the filmmakers have incorporated the five modifications recommended by the review committee of the CBFC and a special panel of historians, Karni Sena continued their protest. "We will provide security to the mall at the time of screening of the film", Chakrapani Tripathi, Circle Officer (CO), Meerut told ANI.

As police tried to disperse them, the duty magistrate gave an order to fire in the air.

The video of frightened students crouching inside their school bus as the terrorists smashed the window glasses before burning another government bus had gone viral. A school bus carrying children and staff was also damaged in stone-pelting, though no one was said to be injured.

A mobile phone video that captured the frightful moments inside the bus as it was attacked showed the youngest children cry out with fear.

Dozens of protests have been reported from across at least six states. Following the horrific condition of Gurugram, a number of schools have declared a holiday for January 25.
