Security personnel claiming to have a court order demanded stoppage of the screening minutes before its start. The organizers had to heed for the demand and announced the development from the stage giving the excited crowed a bad ice bucket like challenge.

Difret narrates a story of a 14 year old who allegedly abducted who happened to kill her abductor.
