Jaipur: A man was found hanging on Friday morning at Jaipur's famous Nahargarh fort. On the stone wall nearby was scribbled “Padmavati ka virodh (in opposition to Padmavati)". The police say it's not clear if this is a case of suicide or murder. The graffiti includes this warning: "We don't burn effigies, we hang them." The dead man has been identified as Chetan Saini, a local jeweler. Message was written on the stone near the fort wall adjacent to the body.
Lokendra singh Kalvi of the Karni Sena, which has led violent demonstrations against the movie, described the death as ‘regrettable’ and said: "It should not have happened."
Commenting on the incident, Rajput leader Giriaj Singh Lotwara said, “This is a matter of probe. Padmavati is a burning issue and anything can be linked to it. No organisation can go to such an extent of threats or encourage such things.”
