Sending a stern message to troublemakers protesting against the release of 'My Name is Khan', Mumbai police on Friday said it would apply provisions of a law against them which stipulates that those inflicting damage will have to compensate the victims.

"In case of any damage caused by protestors, we will ensure that the victim gets the compensation. Section 51 and others of the Bombay Police Act, which will pave way for the victims to seek compensation, will be applied against the agitators," Joint Police Commissioner (Law and Order) Himanshu Roy said.

"Our utmost priority is to ensure everything goes fine and apply stern sections of the IPC, the Bombay Police Act and others against the troublemakers," he said.

Against the backdrop of the decision by multiplex chains owners in Mumbai to have a limited release of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer MNIK post-noon today, no untoward incident was reported, Roy claimed.

Meanwhile, police have arrested 665 more Shiv Sainiks this morning as a preventive measure, taking the total number of the outfit's workers put behind the bars to 2,665 since Tuesday.
