The Haryana police confirmation came after rumours were floating all around social media that the anti-"Padmaavat" protesters who stoned the bus were young Muslim men. 

A mob of 60 people attacked the bus one day before the movie was about to release.

About 20-25 students of GD Goenka World School, Gurugram had a narrow escape after their school bus was attacked by a frenzied mob.

On January 25, the police took into custody 23 people for the stone pelting and charged them with rioting and attempt to murder. 

The mob attacked the bus with bamboo sticks and asked the driver to stop the vehicle. 

After the driver did not stop the bus, the protesters pelted the vehicle with stones.
