Youth Congress leader hacked to death; Hartal in Kannur

Kerala Youth Congress leader hacked to death, blames CPI(M) for murder

In a tragic incident being reported from Kerala, a man was murdered by a group of unidentified men in the Kannur district on Monday night.

Former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the CPI (M) had extended its brand of political violence to the Congress in order to render the entire State strife-torn.

The critically injured Shuhaib was rushed to the Indira Gandhi Co-Operative Hospital at Thalassery where he succumbed, the police said, adding that the injured persons were stable. Police sources also suspect that CPM supporters were behind the attack.

"The attack exposes the fascist face of the CPI (M)".

The incident occurred late last night when four assailants came in a auto and hurled crude bombs and attacked S P Shuhaib and two other party members with machetes, they said.

In the wake of the incident, the Congress party has called for a dawn-to-dusk shut down in Kannur on Tuesday, but has said that vehicles will be allowed to ply.

No one has been arrested in connection with the incident and further investigations were on, police said.

"We will look into what has happened and if any of our party members are involved, then appropriate action will be taken. It seems the party can't survive without violence", said district Congress (DCC) president Satheesan Pacheni.

While the Mattanoor CPI-M leaders have flatly denied any role of the party behind the murder, TV channels have now released a video of a march taken out by the CPI-M, who are seen shouting slogans that Shoaib's days are numbered.

Leader of the Opposition Ramesh Chennithala said the murder was yet another instance of the "red terrorism" in the district.
