Congress activist killing: Two CPI(M) workers surrender

Two CPI(M) activists surrendered to the police in connection with the recent killing of Youth Congress leader Shuhabib at Mattanoor in Kannur district, police officials said.

Akash and Rijin Raj, both in their thirties, went to the police station at Maloor, near Mattanoor, with a few other local CPI(M) workers and surrendered to the authorities, they said.

The development comes in the backdrop of the Congress sharpening its attack on the ruling CPI(M) over the killing of its functionary on February 13.

Shuhaib, the Mattanur block Youth Congress secretary, was at a roadside tea shop with two other party members, Riaz and Naushad, when they were attacked.

The Youth Congress leader was critically injured and died after being taken to the Indira Gandhi Co-Operative Hospital at Thalassery, the police said, adding that the condition of those injured was stable.

Police suspect the assault could be related to incidents of violence in the area last week.
