Padmaavat row: Karni Sena members set ticket counter at CTC Mall Faridabad afire

Faridabad CTC Mall
New Delhi: Supporters of Karni Sena set a ticket counter in CTC Mall of Sector 10 Faridabad afire, raising slogans against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming period drama Padmaavat yet again. A video, which has been uploaded on social media, shows two masked men walking towards the ticket counter and throwing a petrol bomb like object.

The incident occurred on Thursday night around 10. Two fire tenders were rushed to the spot and a case has been registered.

On Thursday itself, dozens of activists of Karni Sena vandalised a cinema hall and went on rampage in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district soon after the Supreme Court suspended the ban on the movie imposed by four states including Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh.

Karni Sena leader Lokendra Singh has asked Hindu organisations across the country to ensure the movie is not shown in cinema halls.
