A young man was found hanging off the parkot (parapet) of Jaipur’s famous Nahargarh fort. The death is being linked to the protests against Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film Padmavati.
This is because a charcoal graffiti on the wall next to the lifeless body said, “Padmavati, hum sirf putle nahi latkate (Padmavati, we hang not just effigies).” The words “Padmavati ka virodh (Protest against Padmavati)” were also found next to the body.
