Padmaavat protests: Haryana Roadways bus torched; school bus attacked

After vandalising a high-end mall in Gurgaon to the protest against the release of Padmaavat, the miscreants have now started causing damaging public property and private vehicles on the outskirts of the city. The masked miscreants, in the early hours of evening today, burnt a Haryana Roadways bus at Panwal depot and caused damage to private vehicles in the area around Bhondsi.

They also engaged in extensive stone pelting on the Sohna road stretch.

In another violent episode in Bhondsi, the protestors attacked a school bus carrying schoolchildren. The miscreants attacked the bus with stones and rods. Fortunately, the children and staff escaped unhurt as the driver sped through the melee.

Talking to City Spidey, police commissioner Sandeep Khirwar said, “The police has already arrested 24 people in this regard. While 13 were from Bhondsi, 2 were arrested from DT City Centre mall. The rest were nabbed from various parts of the city.”

He further added, “We will get to the people behind these incidents and serious action will be taken against them. We will control the situation, and adequate deployment of force will happen in different parts of the city. ”
