CPIM secretary attacked; Hartal in Kannur
Kannur: The CPIM has called for a 12 hour hartal in Kannur district tomorrow in protest against the attack on CPIM Kannur District Secretary, P Jayarajan. More than 50 Muslim League activists hurled stones at the vehicle in which Mr Jayarajan was traveling in. The incident occurred at Ariyil, Thaliparamba this afternoon. Mr Jayarajan and MLA T V Rajesh were injured.
” It was an attempt to murder us. It is only because the driver was clever enough and managed to maneuver the car out of the angry mob that we survived,” Mr Jayarajan said. The CPIM leaders protested before the Thaliparamba police station. MLA James Mathew was also traveling in the same vehicle that was attacked. The vehicles of Kairali TV, and Deshabhimani were also attacked by the mob.
