The note, was written on the rock next to the body.

"Hum putle nahi jalate, latkate hain' (we don't burn effigies, we kill)". A note saying "Padmavati Virodh (protest)" has been found inscribed on stones.

"We don't just hang effigies". The government had also given security to Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali at the wake of these threats. "I want to tell people not to resort to such methods", Makrana said.

Facebook's disclosures, however, will only reach a fraction of the more than 120 million users who saw the posts, the company said.

"It is early to comment on it as the matter is under investigation". The man has been identified as Chetan Kumar, a resident of Jaipur. Activists of the Karni Sena, a Rajput community, besides other groups have been protesting against the movie, claiming the film "distorts" historical facts. India's Karni army has condemned the incident and have said that they have nothing to do with this.

On Thursday, Karni Sena had threatened to burn theatres in the United Kingdom after the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) cleared Padmavati for the United Kingdom audience. "Padmavati" has been produced by Viacom-18; the studio has suggested it will delay the film's release, originally planned for December 1, to next year. A Karni Sena leader threatened actress Deepika Padukone, who plays the lead in the movie, with physical harm.

Mr Bhansali has denied any allusion to a love story, but several BJP-ruled states including Rajasthan have banned the movie, declaring they will not permit it to screen even if it is cleared by the censor board, which has yet to review the film.
