Play to be performed by Pak artists cancelled after protests Jaipur: A play, scheduled to be presented by Pakistani artists, was today cancelled by Ravindra Rangmanch authorities here following protests by some local activists in view of brutal killing of two Indian soldiers by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control(LoC).

The play titled `Kaun Hai Yeh Gustakh` was scheduled to be presented by Pakistan`s Ajoka theatre at 5.30 pm under 15th Theatre Utsav organised by National School of Drama at Ravindra Rangmanch.

"Some local activists protested against the proposed drama by Pakistani artists. So in view of security, the drama was cancelled," Neetu Rajeshwar, Manager Ravindra Rangmanch said.
