Tripura Infoways website has also reported attack on Krishnanagar Jama Masjid.

It says participants of a rally brought out by Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Thursday broke window glasses and CCTV cameras of the mosque.

Meanwhile, a prominent member of the erstwhile royal family of Tripura Pradyot Manikya has condemned the violence and appealed for peace.

Manikya is also a leader of Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance. His tweet reads: “Any motivated acts in our state where minorities are attacked as retaliation to what has happened in Bangladesh must be condemned! Please remember two wrongs don’t make a right …. I appeal for peace amongst all religions in our state.”
