Deeply embarrassed by one of its leaders offering a Rs 10 crore bounty on the heads of actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali of the film 'Padmavati', the BJP said it has issued a show cause to him for making the outrageous statement.

BJP general secretary Anil Jain said the party had nothing to do with such statements and emphasised that there is rule of law in Haryana and no one can issue such fatwas.

Haryana BJP chief media coordinator Suraj Pal Amu, at a function of the Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Mahasabha in Delhi on Sunday, had offered a bounty of Rs 10 crore on the heads of Deepika and Bhansali.

As Amu's remarks came in for criticism from several quarters, the BJP sent a show cause notice to him, indicating that the party would take action against him.

The National Commission for Women also said it would urge the Haryana Police to take action against Amu.
