Eyewitnesses say the 'activists' pushed children, misbehaved with parents, teachers and even threatened the school administration. They also damaged chairs, stage and the music system. Sources said they were students of Bhagat Singh PG College, which is loacted near the school.
The police have detained four youngsters and registered a case of trespassing, rioting and endangering the safety of others. Inspector OPS Parihar from Jaora police station said, "About 15 to 20 people barged into the school premises when Ghoomar dance was being staged. They disrupted the function and fled the venue."
Surendra Bhati of Rajput Karni Sena Ujjain, however, has steered clear of the incident. He said, "We condemn such incidents, we are here to fight for a cause to protect the dignity of our community, but we won't create an atmosphere of fear. If any of our members are found to be involved in the incident, we will take action against them."
Several groups, including the Karni Sena, had strongly opposed its release, claiming objectionable depiction of Queen Padmini and alleged a distortion of history. The film has now been cleared by the censor board and slated to be released on January 25. The board had set up a special panel of historians and members of royal families in Rajasthan, who watched the film and suggested changes, before giving it a go ahead.
However, the BJP government in the Madhya Pradesh has clarified that the film will not be released in the state.
