CPI-M youth wing to protest against police attack on its cadre
CPI-M youth wing DYFI will hold a rally in Thiruvananthapuram on September 11 to protest the attack on one of their activists, who waved black flag against Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday as part of its agitation demanding his resignation over solar panel scam.

CPI-M youth wing DYFI will hold a rally in Thiruvananthapuram on September 11 to protest the attack on one of their activists, who waved black flag against Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday as part of its agitation demanding his resignation over solar panel scam.

The DYFI activist Jayaprasad, who was seriously injured in the police action, was admitted to Medical College Hospital in Thiruvananthapuram. He was beaten up with lathi, punched on his testicle and stomach by a police official, official sources said.

The police official has been suspended from service on the basis of a preliminary report by Director General of Police. The incident occurred when Chandy and Agriculture Minister K P Mohan arrived for the inauguration of the district storage centre of the state-owned Horticulture Development Corporation at nearby Anayara in Thiruvananthapuram.

DYFI volunteers waved black flags as part of their agitation against Chandy on the highway which led to police action. The incident evoked widespread condemnation from all quarters of the society.

State Human Rights Commission Chairman Justice J B Koshy has asked the DGP to submit a report on the police action within three weeks. Home Minister Tiruvanchoor Radhakrishn said a high level inqury has been ordered into the incident and action would be taken after getting its report.

DYFI activists would also organise dharans before the office of Superintendent of Police in all district headquarters to protest the incident on September 11.

DYFI has also decided to intensify its protest against Chandy demanding his resignation over solar panel scam and alleged the government was trying to suppress the agitation using police force.
