Bihar: Muslim-Owned Shops Vandalized and Looted During Durga Procession in Begusarai

During the Durga immersion procession in Bihar’s Begusarai, a clash broke out between two groups, resulting in the vandalization and looting of Muslim-owned shops.

Begusarai Superintendent of Police Yogendra Kumar said that the incident, which occurred in the Ballia market area, left three individuals injured and necessitated police intervention, including a lathi charge.

According to the locals, the clash erupted when an individual identified as Amit Rastogi allegedly removed the flag belonging to one of the processions. Tempers flared, leading to a gunshot being fired at those participating in the idol immersion, and the flag associated with the procession was tampered with.

The disturbance triggered outrage among participants of the other procession, culminating in the vandalism of local Muslim-owned shops.

The police intervened, employing a lathi charge to bring the situation under control and prevent further violence. Three individuals were reported injured in the incident. Police have detained six individuals for questioning.

Authorities said that they are actively working to defuse tensions and maintain order in the aftermath of this unfortunate incident in Begusarai, Bihar.

Earlier, Union Minister Giriraj Singh, the local MP, condemned the Nitish Kumar government for its “handling of the incident”.

The BJP leader told reporters, “Begusarai has witnessed many communal incidents in the recent past. But because of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s politics of appeasement and vote bank, only the Hindus are held guilty.”

“I fear that justice will again be denied and the entire blame, for the latest incident, will be laid on Hindus,” Singh added.
