Kannur: KPCC president K Sudhakaran was issued an unusual notice by the police. The notice reads that there is possibility of an attack against the police during the Collectorate march in Kannur and that strict action will be taken against him if such an attack takes place.
The march will be inaugurated by K Sudhakaran. The notice that was sent to him by Kannur City Assistant Commissioner calls attention to the attacks that may take place on the day of the march and also warns that precautions must be taken to prevent such attacks. The notice says that action will be taken against K Sudhakaran, as the inaugurator of the march, for not taking necessary measures to prevent the attack. It is unusual for the police to send out such notices to the person inaugurating the march before protest rallies take place.
Following the allegations by Swapna Suresh against the CM in the gold smuggling case, Congress and UDF have been going strong with protests across the state.
Congress leader P C Vishnunadh reacted to this unusual notice saying it shows how much the government is scared.
The protests staged in Kozhikode and Kollam turned violent. In Kochi and Kottayam, youth organisations backed by political parties took to the streets and raised slogans.
Meanwhile, the national highway saw traffic congestion after a Youth Congress march turned violent in Kozhikode. Protestors stopped vehicles by barricading the roads and the police had to use water cannons to disperse the protestors.
