Body found hanging in Nahargarh Fort in protest of Padmavati

At Jaipur Fort Dead Body Found With Sign Referring To'Padmavati

The body of a man was found hanging at Jaipur's Nahargarh Fort on Friday with messages denouncing "Padmavati" scribbled on rocks nearby even as passions for and against the controversial film continued to rage. "'Padmavati" has been facing a series of protests from pro-Hindutuva and members of royal family particularly in Rajasthan.

Earlier scheduled to get there in cinema halls on December 1, the release date of the film has now been deferred by the makers till further notice.

The deceased has been identified as Chetan, a resident of Jaipur's Shastri Nagar from the Aadhaar card found in his pocket.

"Padmavati" ka virodh (in opposition to "Padmavati') was scribbled on a stone next to the body".

It is yet to be determined whether the death was a murder or a suicide.

Speaking to CNN-News18, Rajput Karni Sena President Mahipal Singh Makrana - the man who had threatened to chop off Deepika Padukone's nose - said: "This could be a suicide".

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but armed group Boko Haram carries out regular attacks in the region. Tuesday's attack was the first since Mubi town was liberated from Boko Haram insurgents in 2014.

Interestingly, each message mentioned Padmavati. The text on the wall reads, "Padmavati, hum sirf putle nahi latkate (Padmavati, we hang not just effigies)".

The police are exploring all angles, but it is an issue of serious concern as this is the first protest against those opposing Padmavati release.

The film Padmavati tells the story of a 14th-Century Hindu queen belonging to the high Rajput caste and the Muslim ruler Alauddin Khilji.

The opposers of the movie involve groups of militant Hinduism, such as the Karni Sena and some other politicians from the BJP.

Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh play the lead roles.

The movie has been mired in controversies over its release.
