One more attack on School Bus as Protests Over Padmaavat Escalate

GD Goenka School Bus Attacked In Gurgaon As Protests Over Padmaavat Escalate; Large Gatherings Banned

Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: A school bus carrying students was attacked by protesters in Gurgaon, adjacent to national capital Delhi, as protests turned violent in several states a day before the release of “Padmaavat.” The attackers threw stones at the school bus, smashing its windows. Nobody was injured but a video showed terrified students ducking and cowering in fearing fear.

Protesters, allegedly activists of the Karni Sena, a Rajput group which is spearheading the protests, also set on fire a Haryana Roadways bus and blocked roads. The administration has banned protests within a 200-metre radius of movie halls till Sunday, and the police said people armed with weapons or other objects “capable of causing injury” would not be allowed near movie theaters, but many of Gurgaon’s 40 cinema halls have said they will not screen the film.
