    In a series of tweets, BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya said that the Chattisgarh government and Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel have much to answer on the horrific tragedy that has played out in Jaspur.

    "How come there was no police barricading during the Durga idol immersion procession? How was a speeding car allowed to get this close to the Hindu devotees," Malviya asked, claiming that all these incidents of assault on Hindus are happening in the state, while Baghel is busy helping the Gandhi siblings find political ground in Uttar Pradesh.

    Meanwhile, the state police arrested two occupants of the vehicle, Bablu Vishwakarma (21) and Shishupal Sahu (26), natives of Singrauli in neighbouring Madhya Pradesh, from the outskirts of the town.
