"Failure of administration." While another parent said, "There is panic, if school bus can be attacked in Gurugram then can happen in Delhi also, even here there are cinema halls near schools, so have come to drop my child to school myself".

The Haryana government has said that it would implement the Supreme Court order for providing security to ensure the movie's screening.

According to Gujarat Multiplex Association President Manubhai Patel said they stand to lose Rs 50 lakh daily due to the cancellation of the release of "Padmaavat" in theatres in the state.

The film, starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, is based on the saga of the 13th Century battle between Maharaja Ratan Singh of Mewar and Sultan Alauddin Khilji.

Meanwhile, stones were pelted at the PVS mall in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut allegedly in protest against the film.

The opposition party also slammed the BJP government in Haryana over its "failure" to maintain law and order in the state.

Thankfully, there is a silver lining to the sad news that Sir Elton John is retiring. He told CNN he's no longer going to travel so he can spend more time with his kids.

The release of the film was delayed as it was protested by the Rajput community and others across the country for showing Queen Padmavati in low light.

"The BJP's use of hatred and violence is setting our entire country on fire", Gandhi said in his tweet hours after a video of scared children crouching in the school bus targeted by hooligans protesting the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie prompted nationwide outrage on Wednesday. This shows how the (Haryana) government has failed.

Following the attack, several top schools in Gurgaon have announced a holiday for the rest of the week. The bus was carrying students of GD Goenka World School.

Clubs and bars in Gurugram have been ordered to be closed from 7 pm on Wednesday till further order in the light of protests and actions is taken against the defaulters.

The Congress spokesperson said Haryana had become the "gang rape capital" of India in the last two years.
