Congress condemns killing of party worker in Kannur

Accusing the ruling CPI(M) of being behind the killing of its youth-wing leader in Kerala’s Kannur district, the Congress saidthat the Marxist party has unleashed ‘red terror’ in the state.

Congress Working Committee member and former defence minister A.K Antony said the killing of Youth Congress leader T.H Shuhaib was the latest episode of “red terror” unleashed by the Communist Party of India (Marxist).

Police have become “mere spectators” to attacks carried out by the CPI(M), Antony said, adding that the left party has again proved that it was not ready to eschew violence.

Antony alleged that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, who holds the home portfolio, has “failed” to maintain law and order in Kannur district.

He also expressed doubts whether it would be possible to bring the culprits behind the attack, before the law.

Youth Congress leader and Mattanoor party Block Secretary Shuhaib was hacked to death allegedly by CPI(M) workers at Mattanur in Kannur district.

The killing happened late on Monday night when four assailants came in a car and hurled crude bombs and attacked the victim and two other party members with machetes.
