Padmavati row: Dead body found hanging in Japiur's Nahargarh fort; death note on rock linked to the film
In a shocking development in the row over the film Padmavati, which clearly indicates how lethal the protests have turned, a dead body was found hanging in the ramparts of Japiur's Nahargarh fort on Friday, as reported by ANI.

Furthermore, two death notes have also been recovered written on stones near the dead body.

One stone reads: "Hum putle nahin jalate .... latkate hain" (we don't burn effigies, we hang them).

Hum putle nahin jalate.. katjate hain

The other stone reads: "Padmavati' ka virodh" (in protest against 'Padmavati').

According to ANI, the deceased man has been identified as 40-year-old Chetan Kumar Saini, however, it has not been confirmed whether it was a case of 'murder' or 'suicide'.

The probe is being carried out by the Rajasthan Police, not ruling out the shocking incident as a case of murder.

Meanwhile, 'Shree Rajput Karni Sena' (a Rajput fringe group) which has been protesting against the filmmakers for distorting historical facts, has made it clear that they are not involved in the incident.

The upcoming epic drama has been facing a lot of criticism and dissension especially by the Rajput community since early this year. The movie still continues to face extreme condemnation from the Rajput community, who has alleged that the real facts have been fabricated in the film.

Last week, a Haryana BJP leader had even offered a reward of Rs 10 crore to anyone who would 'behead' Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone, the film's director and lead actress respectively.
