  • Nahargarh Fort Padmavati row body found at Nahargarh Fort Nahargarh hanging Padmavati controversy Indian Express

"'Padmavati" has been facing a series of protests from pro-Hindutuva and members of royal family particularly in Rajasthan.

The official December 1 release of the film has already been postponed and several states have already banned it. In the pictures, the note can be seen written on the stone with charcoal.

The deceased has been identified as 23-year-old Chetan Kumar by the police on the basis of an Aadhaar card found from his pocket.

The message, scrawled on rocks nearby, read, "Hum putle nahin jalate. latkate hain" (We don't burn effigies, we hang them). The words "Padmavati ka virodh (Protest against Padmavati)" were also found next to the body.

Meanwhile, Rajput Karni Sena, which is protesting against the release of Deepika Padukone starer Padmavati said that it has nothing to do with the case.

The Hindi film, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, is in the eye of a raging and often-violent storm. On Thursday the film was cleared by the British censors without a single cut. The police came to the scene immediately after hearing of the dead body but said that it is very hard to decide if the threats written on the rocks are related to the dead body.

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 movie has been mired in controversies over its release.
