A few members of the Karni Sena reportedly created a ruckus at MC Stan's concert in Indore on Friday. According to reports, they forced him to stop the show alleging that he uses inappropriate language in his songs. MC Stan is a rapper who shot to fame with Bigg Boss 16.
As per reports, the local cops registered a case against some members of the organisation on Saturday but as of now, no arrest has been made yet. A First Information Report (FIR) was registered at Lasudia police station in the city under sections 451 (trespassing in premises to commit offense), 294 (abuse) and 506 (intimidation) and other relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code, said sub-inspector R S Dandotia to a media agency.

The cop said the accused named in the FIR included local Karni Sena leaders Digvijay Singh and Raja Singh. The rest of them are being identified from video footage of the incident. Reportedly, the Karni Sena activists allegedly abused and threatened people in the audience after barging into Stan's show which was held at a hotel in the Lasudia area. The rapper had to leave in the middle of the show and the police reached the spot and used "mild force" to disperse the protesters.
Stan had a concert scheduled in Nagpur after Indore. It was to take place on Saturday. However, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) opposed the concert citing that the rapper has allegedly been using obscene language and encouraging youngsters to consume drugs.
In a statement to a Marathi local newspaper, a member of MNS told, "MC will not allow Stan to come for any event in Nagpur city. This type of thing will not be tolerated by the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena….if the government allows this event, we will go to its venue and demolish it."
