Gurugram: Eighteen people have been arrested in connection with an attack on a school bus here during protests against the Hindi movie "Padmaavat", Haryana Police said on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, Congress president Rahul Gandhi took to his Twitter account and blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party saying BJP's use of hatred and violence is setting our entire country on fire.

Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday announced that the state will abide by the Supreme Court orders on the controversial flick "Padmaavat" and provide security to the cinema halls that will screen the movie.

Congress's communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala took to Twitter to term the attack as "unacceptable" and "reprehensible" that endangered the lives of children. The report said students were still inside the bus when the protestors began to pelt stones at it.

Apparently, the gang had the cocaine stored in Terrassa, Barcelona and transported it to Madrid laboratories every 15-20 days. Along with the drugs, nine members of a South American gang who were transporting the drugs were also arrested.

"Terrified children cry inconsolably and anarchy prevails". Representatives of the body said that the administration told them that the law and order situation is not conducive. "One other teacher and I chose to stay on the bus until the last stop", said Bhargava, adding that some students also kept asking how their parents would return home from work in such an atmosphere.

When the driver did not comply, the miscreants pelted the vehicle with stones apparently to hurt the children. "We have never run away.", he said, adding those who pelted stones were not known to anyone "and hence Karni Sena was being blamed".

The Karni Sena has been protesting vociferously against and has demanded a ban on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat", which they say distorts history.

Violent protest erupted in several towns and cities erupted in several states including Rajasthan, Haryana, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh ahead of the release.
