Multiplex Association says its members will not screen 'Padmaavat' in Rajasthan, Gujarat, MP and Goa

Protesters block roads ahead of Padmavati release

The school bus carrying children and staff was damaged in the stone-pelting, though no one was said to be injured. The teachers feared their fate would be the same. "People from your party have used the "power of stones" to attack schoolchildren", says Sisodia. I stopped to ask policemen about it, and they asked me to leave.

Noted among them was actor Farhan Akhtar, who wrote, "Attacking a school bus is not an agitation".

Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi said the Wednesday attack on a school bus in Gurugram in Haryana was "more saddening and shameful" that showed how the Modi and the Haryana governments had "failed to maintain law and order". "We did not expect such an incident", Sharma said.

The unruly crowd also broke window panes of transport vehicles in protest. School administrations said that they would not want to risk the lives of students. "The situation is peaceful and schools, colleges and offices will open normally on Thursday", Deputy Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh said in a statement. "The children somehow took cover inside the bus". A call was then made to the principal and it was chose to proceed along the route instead of returning to the school.

The students were on their way home when a group of around 60 protesters, believed to be members of a fringe group, attacked their bus with bamboo sticks asking the driver to stop the vehicle. "Some pre-emptive arrests too have been made and so far four FIRs have been registered in this matter", he added. In it, he said that he was heading from Agra to Gurgaon around 10.30 am with "30-35 passengers" on board. Despite prohibitory orders in Gurgaon, hundreds of Shree Rajput Karni Sena supporters also protested at Kherki Daula toll plaza on the Delhi-Jaipur National Highway. Haryana police had come under severe criticism in the past for failing to control mob violence, most recently at the time of the arrest of Dera Sachcha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim. Five rounds were fired, and the protesters were dispersed.
