NEW DELHI: A dead body was found hanging in Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur along with two stones found near the body have a couple of lines written in hindi, which read, "Padmavati ka virodh. "Hum putle nahi jalaate, hum maarte hain" ("We don't burn effigies. We kill."). But no confirmation is given that if the body found is related to anti-Padmavati protest. The Jaipur police is investigating the matter that whether it is a murder or a suicide. Shri Rajput Karni Sena has condemned the violence, denied involvement in the incident and termed it unfortunate.

Earlier on Thursday, the British Board of Film Certification (BBFC) certified Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period drama Padmavati in the United Kingdom without any cuts, but the producers say they are not planning to release the film without the Indian Censor Board's go-ahead.
The Shri Rajput Karni Sena, the outfit spearheading the protests, has said that if the family of the erstwhile Chittor royalty approve of the film, it will withdraw its plan to forcibly stop the exhibition of Padmavati. There have been protests against the film in different states of India. The film has been banned in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.

Officers from the Brahmapuri Police Station were investigating at the spot. It was not immediately clear if it was a case of murder or suicide. The deceased has been identified as Chetan and he was strangled using a plastic wire, the police said while adding that the deceased's Aadhaar Card was found in his pocket.

Mahipal Singh Makrana, a member of the Rajput Karni Sena which has been spearheading the Padmavati protest, said his outfit did not have anything to do with the latest development.
“This is not our way of protest. I want to tell people not to resort to such methods,” Makrana said.
His outfit had last week threatened to chop off Deepika Padukone’s nose “just as Soorpanakha’s nose was chopped off”.
