The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has demanded a National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe into the matter. Leader of the Opposition in the West Bengal Legislative Assembly and BJP leader Shubhendu Adhikari asked whether the incident took place at the inauguration ceremony at Howrah station. Is it “revenge” for chanting “Jai Shri Ram”?
He tweeted, “Unfortunate and disgusting. Stones pelted at Vande Bharat Express, the pride of India in Malda, West Bengal. Was this done to avenge the chanting of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ at the inauguration ceremony? I urge the Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Railways to hand over the investigation of the matter to the NIA and punish the guilty.
