The attack by a group of people in Kolkata’s Hazinagar area has failed to get some coverage at least in the national media.

A series of videos have surfaced that are sure to shock many.

As per a report in jagrukbharat, the rioting occurred during a Muharram rally when some people attacked houses and stores in the way. It happened in North 24 Pargana’s Hazinagar and Naihati area.

Residents of the area have alleged that local politicians have failed to respond to the incident.

And it is not just politicians, they allege that even the local police was not helping them as they have aligned with local goons.

Clearly, it was an absolute lawlessness that loomed all over the area for several hours and people were filled with pain, anger, and sadness.

The big question is how long these politicians are going to be captive of ballot boxes which make them blind to a critical law and order situation?
