The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on 10 January, dismissed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's claims about the Malda violence not being a 'communal incident' and accused her of protecting her party goons involved in the smuggling of fake currency and drugs.

The BJP leader said that the committee members would be visiting the BSF camp and would also interact with the Hindu families to get to the bottom of the incident.

Violence broke out in Kaliachawk last week when some Muslim groups called a meeting to protest certain remarks allegedly made by a Hindu leader in Uttar Pradesh about the Prophet. The BSF vehicles were set on fire when the security forces tried to intervene.

Several vehicles on the national highway were set on fire by the angry protestors, who also attacked the Kaliachawk Police Station.
