Malda (West Bengal): A man was allegedly thrashed by four persons in a moving train in West Bengal, after he failed to name the prime minister and the West Bengal chief minister, police said on Friday.

The victim was identified as Jamal Momin, a migrant labourer. Momin was on his way to Kaliachak in Malda district from Howrah on May 14, when the four accused got into the train and sat next to his seat after he had briefly deboarded at a station, a police officer said.

When Momin arrived, the four men tried to oust him from the seat and heckled him with questions about Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the national anthem and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

When he failed to answer, the men allegedly roughed him up. Momin reportedly replied that he wasn’t educated when the accused fired a question on Nawaz Sharif at him.

According to a report in Times of India, the men also asked Momin if he offered namaz every day and when he replied that he did, they reportedly said, “Shame on you. You offer namaz every day at a mosque but you don’t know the national anthem.”

The group also allegedly forced him to say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and later got down at Bandel station.

A local NGO named Bangla Sankriti Mancha lodged an FIR against the accused, based on videos taken by co-passengers, Kaliachak Police Station Inspector-in-Charge Suman Chatterjee said.

An investigation into the matter is underway, Chatterjee said.
