Some unidentified miscreants torched a BJP leader’s bus in Assam’s Morigaon in the wee hours of Tuesday. The incident took place in Mayong area in the central Assam district.
The bus belonged to Ram Prasad Sarkar, who is the general secretary of BJP’s Morigaon district unit.
This came at a time when protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 are going on across Assam.
According to reports, the bus was parked on a road just in front of the BJP leader residence.
Ram Prasad Sarkar’s younger brother said that they heard some sound at around 1.25 am and when they came outside they found the bus was on fire.
“We and some locals had tried to douse the flames. We don’t know the reason behind it. Local police have now come and the reason will find out after police investigation,” Ram Prasad Sarkar’s brother said.
Police investigation is going on.
