Section 144 was imposed in some areas of Howrah on Friday, a day after several vehicles were set on fire amid Ram Navami celebrations. Union home minister Amit Shah spoke to West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose while the government handed the probe to CID.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said the Ram Navami violence was not a communal tension and was perpetrated by the BJP and other right-wing organisations. "I have been appealing to the people to carry out Ram Navami processions peacefully. No government incites people to carry out vandalism.

A total of 38 people have been arrested in connection with Howrah's Ram Navami violence and two cases have been registered, Howrah police said.
