CPI(M) worker attacked in Kannur

A CPI(M) worker suffered serious injuries in an attack by suspected BJP workers at Panoor in the politically volatile district Kannur.

Police said the legs of the 55-year-old Chandran were almost severed in the attack and he has been rushed to the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital.

The ruling CPI(M) alleged that the BJP activists were behind the attack.

The attack comes a day after a bilateral peace meeting of the leaders of CPI(M) and BJP was held in Kannur in the presence of District Collector Mir Mohammed Ali, in which both parties agreed to initiate peace efforts in areas that had witnessed violence recently.

In Thiruvananthapuram, CPI(M) area committee member of Vanchiyoor, Saju, was attacked by an armed gang on Wednesday night.

He has been admitted to the medical college hospital with serious injuries.
