MLA publicly raps police over CPM­BJP clash in Palakkad

13-Jun-2016 / 4:03 pm
Kerala Updates: Palakkad: In a yet another incident of chastising police publicly Shoranur MLA, P.K. Shashi is seen hitting out at police officials over inaction even though chances of a clash between the BJP and the CPM were visible. Displaying his ire Shashi asked why the police who intercepted vehicles of CPM leaders could not forestall the clash. Both BJP and the CPM alleged negligence on the part of the police in discharging their duty. Meanwhile, the police claimed that leaders of both the parties had a role in igniting the clash. The violence erupted following an argument between activists of the ABVP and SFI, the students' wing of the BJP and the CPM respectively, over installing a party flag mast at Cherpulassery government school. The area was in the grip of fear as the assailants unleashed a wide spread violence by setting afire two­wheelers, attacking houses, and setting ablaze a library in Ponmukham and so on. The police are camping in Pottachira and Ezhuvanthala in Nellaya Panchayat. Cases have been registered against activists of the BJP and RSS. Presently, the situation in Nellaya is under control. Nine persons who are said to be involved in the incident are at large, according to Cherpulassery police. Seven CPM workers who were injured in the clash are undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Thiruvananthapuram. In a similar incident late last month, A. C. Moideen, Kunnamkulam MLA and Minister for Co­operation and Tourism was found publicly flaying a police official over political violence in Thrissur.
