I think it should be increase towards neutral axis.

Shear stress is Maximum at NA and decreases parabolically towards the edge.

Option E is correct.

Shouldn't it be (A - on middle fibre along horizontal plane) as shear stress is max at NA.

Please explain.

Due to longitudinal load in the beam shear force will not develop. Only due to transverse load shear force and bending moment will develop.

As shear stress parabolically decreases from the center if we cut beam horizontally the stress is equal. Everywhere is D is correct.

It should be maximum towards the neutral axis.
