He has been instrumental in several achievement by state police during his illustrious career spanning three and a half decades.

Nahargarh Fort Death: Is it connected to Padmavati? Some unanswered questions

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A dead body was found hanging on the ramparts of Jaipur’s Nahargarh Fort on Friday, with a threat note engraved on the rocks in protest of the movie ‘Padmavati’.The deceased has been identified as Chetan, a resident of Jaipur’s Shastri Nagar from the Aadhaar card found in his pocket. He was working at a jewellery shop.However, questions are being raised over the death. An investigation is on to find out whether it was suicide or murder.There were dozens of messages written in charcoal, however, no charcoal marks were found on the hands of the deceased. ALSO READ Padmavati Controversy: Delhi HC dismisses plea, says such petitions encourage agitatorsInterestingly, each message mentioned Padmavati. One message reads, ‘Chetan Tantrik mara gaya ‘. Another message mention that they (the ones who have hanged the body) do not hang effigies.The film has been in the eye of the storm following protests from conservative groups over alleged tampering with historical facts, a contention which filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has denied repeatedly.With the protest against Padmavati escalating every day, the matter now seems to have taken a communal angle.A few days ago, effigies of stars, including Salman Khan were hanged from Chittorgarh fort and the body of Chetan was hanged in the same way.In these messages, one thing is coincidence — the messages mention ‘Chetan Tantrik’ and the deceased has been identified as a man named Chetan. Chetan Raghav was the tantrik who was thrown out of the Chittor court and who first mentioned the beauty of Padmini (Padmavati) to Khilji.The police are exploring all angles, but it is an issue of serious concern as this is the first protest against those opposing Padmavati release.

Karnataka stands with Deepika Padukone, Khattar should take action against those threatening her: Siddaramaiah

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah today asked his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar to take “stringent action” against those threatening actress Deepika Padukone who is being targeted by fringe groups for her lead role in “Padmavati”.Coming out in support of the actress, the state government said security would be provided to the actress whenever she is in Bengaluru and her family, who hail from Karnataka, in the wake of threats issued to her by several outfits which allege the period film distorted history and hurt sentiments of their community.Deepika is the daughter of badminton icon Prakash Padukone, who lives in Bengaluru.Other crew members, including director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika’s co-star Ranveer Singh, are also facing threats by fringe outfits who claim the film wrongly portrayed the legendary 13th century queen of Chittor Padmavati who is revered by them.”Padmavati” stars Deepika Padukone in the titular role.Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh plays Alauddin Khilji.Siddaramaiah’s reaction came following a reported threat by the Haryana BJP media cell in charge, Suraj Pal Amu announcing a bounty of Rs 10 crore on the actress.The reported threat came after a fringe group Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Mahasabha (ABKM) announced a reward of Rs one crore for those “burning Padukone alive.” Retweeting Karnataka energy minister D K Shivakumar’s tweet, Siddaramaiah commented, “I condemn the culture of intolerance & hate perpetuated by @BJP4India. Karnataka stands with @deepikapadukone.””She is a globally renowned artist from our state. I call upon the CM of Haryana @mlkhattar to take strict action against those holding out threats against her,” he said.Shivakumar tweeted, “It is condemnable that a BJP office bearer is placing a bounty of Rs 10 crore on @deepikapadukone, who is from our state & the daughter of one of India’s most respected sportsman.””Is this BJP’s culture & the way they show respect towards women? Immediate action should be taken.” He said he will write to the chief minister to offer protection to Padukone.He demanded that the BJP apologise and make sure that intimidation doesn’t happen. The minister appealed to all Indians, especially women and artistes, to speak for upholding freedom granted by the Constitution.Karnataka Home minister Ramalinga Reddy told PTI the state will provide security to the actress and her family in the wake of the threats.”Whenever Deepika is here in Karnataka, we will ensure that she gets adequate security. We will also provide security cover to her family staying here,” Reddy said.The makers of ‘Padmavati’ have denied the charge that it distorts history and deferred its release from the slated December 1.They have said the film was a cinematic masterpiece capturing “Rajput valour, dignity and tradition in all its glory.”

Bhansali has gone overboard with artistic licence: Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>As protests against Padmavati movie are spreading across the nation, Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur has also jumped into the fray.Calling that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has gone “completely overboard” with artistic licence, Shriji said: “In February I had very clearly made my thoughts known in an interview in Mumbai that the film had not attained this kind of notoriety.”However, he called the manhandling Bhansali unfortunate and said: “We cannot condone such acts because they are not right and I said it then also.” “As far as the movie was concerned, as long as the Bollywood producers don’t distort the history of our family it should be alright. I said that I had similar the experience of when the serial Maharana Pratap was filmed. The living conditions in Mewar that whether during Maharana Pratap or Rawal Ratan Simnghji’s times were not depicted faithfully,” said Shriji.He said that Bhansali claims that he has shown great respect to Rajput pride and sensibilities.“I cannot comment without seeing the picture. However, the opulence shown in the trailer shows that the filmmaker is oblivious to the actual conditions that prevailed. Mewar was never a rich state and due to frequent attacks had to maintain a huge army. All the state money went into upkeep of the army, and not into providing Maharanis with huge palaces or wealth,” Shriji said.On the issue of Jauhar shown in the film, Shrijji said: “My feeling is that an issue like Jauhar was far too sensitive to be displayed on a cine screen without total understanding of what a Jauhar is. It’s not a game, it’s not a joke. This movie is a very ‘nindaniya’ (condemnable ) reflection of ‘naari asmita’ (female pride) of Chittor,” he further said.‘Janta Curfew’ on December 1In protest against Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial film Padmavati, the Dharohar Bachao Samiti has announced “Janta Curfew” in Jaipur on December 1. The convener of the committee, Bharat Sharma, told that on December 1, the city of Jaipur will be completely closed. Only medical services will be kept out of the lock. Apart from this, Government-Private Offices, shops, school-college, bus and all other services will be closed. Many Hindu and Social organizations have supported the Band. It will be full successful off.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Deepika starrer Padmavati seems to be getting more and more embroiled in controversy with every passing day.

When he started with the shooting of Padmavati he had agreed to screen the film before us.” “He had also consented that the screening would be before the launch of any song or trailer of the film. He has not honoured his commitment,” added Padmini Devi.BJP MLA and member of the Jaipur royal family Diya Kumari also came out publicly along with her mother Padmini Devi and said, “Maharani Padmavati of Chittor who committed jauhar with thousands of women is a testimony of extreme valour and courage that has rarely been witnessed in history.” She added that the entire country irrespective of caste or religion is proud of the history of Chittor. Any attempt to distort the history or twist the facts will be a collective insult to the women of this country.”National President, Karni Sena Mahipal Singh Makrana warned that the film would never be allowed to be released in Rajasthan if it has a dream sequence of Allauddin Khilji with Rani Padmavati.” He categorically stated that, “There should be no scene having Rani Padmavati and Allauddin Khilji together.

This has caused panic among the distributors who are considering pulling back from picking up the film that is scheduled to release on December 1.The prospects of Padmavati look gloomy in Rajasthan, and it could follow the fate of Jodha Akbar, unless Bhansali agrees to keep up the promises he made in Rajasthan.WARNINGYouth members of the Rajput Karni Sena are visiting cinema halls and asking cinema hall owners not to screen the film.
