The autopsy report of the victims revealed that the women and children were beaten up before being burned alive.
In the aftermath of the horrific massacre, a physical altercation erupted between BJP and TMC MPs at the West Bengal Assembly on Monday when saffron party workers attempted to protest the incident. Several party leaders were injured.
