Kailash Vijayvargiya was among those who suffered severe injuries in the Diamond Harbour attack. On the day of the attack, JP Nadda was travelling in a bullet-proof car provided by the state government whereas Vijayvargiya was travelling in a normal SUV provided by the party. 

Vijayvargiya said, “The Union home ministry told me not to travel in normal vehicles. I have not seen the bullet-proof car yet.”
