WHAT HAPPENED IN KHARGONE?
On April 10, stones were allegedly pelted at a Ram Navami procession, prompting the police to fire tear gas shells to control the situation, Khargone Additional Collector Sumer Singh Mujalde said.
The pelting of stones triggered arson and several vehicles and houses were set ablaze, a senior police officer said. Three police personnel were among those injured in the clash.
Following the incident, a curfew was clamped in the region. The citizens were asked not to step out except in the case of medical emergencies. So far, 100 people have been arrested in connection with the violence.
The state government demolished the houses of the accused involved in the violence to recover the damage caused to properties.

Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
