This Hidden Camera Footage By A Reporter Reveals A Shocking Truth Of ‘Malda Riots’
On 3 January, a vast crowd, numbering 1.5 lakh, gathered in Kaliachak, West Bengal, to protest defamatory remarks allegedly made against the Prophet Muhammad. Soon after the rally began, a section of those gathered attacked the local police station, torching it. Local papers, and soon the national media, termed the violence communal.
Firstpost reporter Sanjay Pandey visited Kaliachak a fortnight after the incident to investigate. He found otherwise.

His findings are backed by hidden camera footage and interviews with opium poppy farmers and local administration officials.
