Following protests against the release and screening of Santosh Sivan’s Inam, five scenes that showed the humane side of Sinhalese soldiers as well as the loss of LTTE chief V Prabhakaran were clipped. The screening of the film, which was released here on Friday, was stopped after activists of the Thanthai Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam (TPDK) attacked a theatre where the film was to be screened on Friday.

Just before the matinee show, activists of TPDK attacked Balaji Theatre and protested against the screening of the film. Stones were pelted and window panes were broken. Police resorted to a mild lathicharge to disperse the protesters.
