Delhi Police on Friday said it has made proper arrangements to maintain law and order in the capital for the release of Padmaavat next week in the wake of a bandh call by the Shree Rajput Karni Sena against the film.
Speaking to IANS, Special Commissioner of Police, Dependra Pathak said, "In view of the screening of Padmaavat movie next week in the national capital, we have done proper arrangements. We are continuously in touch with various big and small cineplex managements."
"We have proper security in the periphery of the national capital and additional force has been kept in readiness. We are urging groups not to indulge in any act which could violate the law and order situation," Pathak said.
The Karni Sena has been stridently protesting release of Padmaavat on the grounds that it distorts history.
