New Delhi:

A mall in Haryana's Kurukshetra was vandalised by about 20-22 miscreants allegedly in protest against the movie Padmaavat.

According to the eye-witnesses, a group of people opened fire and attacked the place with hammers and swords.

“We suspect this act was against Padmaavat. 20-22 people suddenly entered the mall at 6:48 pm, vandalised it & escaped without saying a word. We have identified a few of them. Further investigation is underway,” said a Haryana Police official.

Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar said, “If someone decides not to screen the film it will be good but if someone screens the film, they will be provided security. It is our duty to comply with Supreme Court's order.”

A couple of days back, alleged supporters of Karni Sena set afire a ticket counter in CTC Mall of Sector 10 Faridabad and raised slogans in support of Karni Sena.
