Row over 'Denikaina Ready' heats up
Tension prevailed at the commission's office when a group of Brahmin protestors threw footwear and stones at the actor's car when he also reached there to lodge a complaint about the alleged attack on his house at Jubilee Hills Wednesday night.
Raising slogans against Vishnu, the protestors demanded a ban on the movie for hurting the sentiments of Brahmins. They alleged that the actor's henchmen attacked them when they were staging a protest in front of his house.
The SHRC chairman directed Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anurag Sharma to submit a report on Wednesday night's incidents.
The commission refused to accept Vishnu's petition, saying a petition was already filed against him.
The young actor, son of veteran actor and former MP Mohan Babu, decried the protest at their house and said they would not be cowed down. He alleged that there were vested interests behind the protest.
Meanwhile, Brahmin organizations staged protests in various parts of the state, demanding a ban on the screening of the movie. A group filed a petition in Guntur court against Mohan Babu, Vishnu and four others. In Eluru town of West Godavari district, a protest was organized outside a theatre showing the movie.
Police have already registered a case against Mohan Babu, who is also the producer of the film and Vishnu on a complaint filed by a citizen.
The film has already triggered a row between producer Mohan Babu and the censor board. He has filed a court case against censor board officer Dhanalakshmi for the delay in granting censor certificate to the movie.
