Body found hanging in Nahargarh Fort in protest of Padmavati

Nahargarh Fort

The body of a yet-to-be identified man was found hanging from Jaipur's Nahargarh fort on Friday morning and a message written on a rock nearby suggested the death was linked to the row over the Bollywood movie Padmavati. An investigation is on to find out whether it was suicide or murder. But the close reading of the message written on stones near the body shows the otherwise.

Yet, the onslaught of threats to the film's cast and producers has resulted in Padmavati's release, which was scheduled for December 1, to be postponed until further notice. Another message mention that they (the ones who have hanged the body) do not hang effigies. The same Rajput Karni Sena had threatened to chop off Deepika Padukone's nose. There have been widespread protests against the movie in several parts of the country with activists claiming that the film "distorts" historical facts.
