Alleging that the film Jism 2 had objectionable scenes, protests were today staged at local cinema halls where some movie-goers were also abused.
Police said a section of the audience who had entered halls to watch the movie were chased and abused by the protesters which included several
local organisations and student bodies.
"We have taken action to ensure that such incidents do not recur," police said.
A spokesman of the protesters Mousam Sarma said the film was for adult viewing but it was "surprising" that college students were allowed inside the cinema halls.
