Man Found Hanging In Jaipur's Nahargarh Fort, With Anti-Padmavati Message

Grieving relatives and acquaintance join Chetan Kumar Saini’s funeral procession in Jaipur on Friday. His body was found hanging from the ramparts of the Nahargarh Fort on Friday

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

The release of the film, which was earlier slated on December 1, was deferred as the filmmakers were yet to procure a censor certificate. Everyone in the neighbourhood recalls Chetan as an obedient, sincere, introvert and peaceful man, and refutes the possibility that such messages could be written by him. He was 40 years old and was a resident of Shastri Nagar area of Jaipur. "He has nothing to do with the threat note written on rocks Padmavati", said Ram Ratan Saini, brother of the man whose body was found.

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

As per the report, the chief of Shri Rajput Karni Sena, Lokendra Singh Kalvi, has condemned the incident.

"Har kafir ka yah haal hoga (Each infidel will meet this fate)", reads one of the messages scribbled on stones.

"A warning message, ". we don't burn effigies, we hang them", was also found scribbled on another stone.

The movie has been mired in controversies over its release. Initially, it looked that the murder was the handiwork of those protesting against the film Padmavati.

Padmini, according to legend, was a Rajput warrior queen from Chittor in Rajasthan who set herself on fire to save her honour after Khilji defeated her husband in battle.

However, a functionary at Viacom 18 said there was no plan to release the film globally without it being cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

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