Malda: In a shocking news that has surfaced, media reports said that Rahul Gandhi's Car was attacked and stones were pelted at his car in Malda in West Bengal.  A car in which Rahul Gandhi was travelling in West Bengal's Malda district as part of 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' was pelted with stones by unidentified persons on Wednesday, claimed state party chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

Congress leaders claimed that massive crowds at Maldah district resulted in damage to the glass of Rahul Gandhi’s car. The rear window pane of the vehicle was reportedly smashed in the incident but no injuries were reported in the incident.

Visuals that are doing rounds on social media showed Rahul Gandhi coming out of his vehicle after reaching a designated halt and inspecting the damaged windowpane. The attack was reported in Malda's Harischandrapur area as the yatra re-entered West Bengal from Bihar.

Claiming conspiracy, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said, "The rear window pane of the vehicle Rahul Gandhi was travelling in was smashed after being pelted with stones. this is unacceptable."

Rahul Gandhi is in Malda as part his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, the second leg of which began from today and will cover Malda, Murshidabad and parts of Birbhum before moving on to Jharkhand. The incident happened at a location close to Dewangunj under Harishchandrapur police station.


The incident came a week after posters and banners welcoming Gandhi in Cooch Behar town were torn. The state government had also allegedly denied permission to the state Congress to host Gandhi at the state guest house.

On February 1, the yatra will enter Murshidabad before exiting the state the next day. The yatra has covered 523 km across six West Bengal districts so far and has traversed Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, Alipurduar and Uttar Dinajpur, with Malda and Murshidabad slated for the second phase.
