New Delhi: A three-MP delegation of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will visit Dhulagarh in West Bengal, which has witnessed violence.

BJP has alleged that the minority wing of the ruling Trinamool Congress has targeted Hindus in the area in Howrah district for their support to the saffron party.

West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi yesterday enquired from the state Director General of Police Surajit Kar Purakayastha about the law and order situation there.

On December 13, clashes between two communities erupted following the Milad-ul-Nabi celebrations in Dhulagarh. Locals in the village alleged that ‘unprovoked’ clashes erupted after an infuriated mob in a procession of Milad-ul-Nabi celebrations started charging bombs at the houses.
