Kasaragod: Tension gripped Chettukundu near here on Tuesday after a group of RSS, BJP activists blocked the road and pelted stones at the women wall.
A large number of BJP, RSS activists came to the spot before women came to organize women wall at Chettukundu. The RSS, BJP activists blocked the road and set fire to the dry grass along the railway tracks running parallel to the road.
This made it difficult for the women wall supporters to breathe and they moved away from the spot. There was intense stone pelting at the women wall. As a result, the women wall was not organized on a stretch of around 300 metres at Chettukundu.
The police and fire and rescue service personnel rushed to the spot and are trying to put out the fire. The police are trying to avoid further untoward incidents.
It must be noted that several from Chettukundu, who went to participate in the Ayyappa jyothi were attacked at Kannur few days ago. The attack against women wall is believed to be a backlash of this incident.
LDF leaders including minister E Chandrasekharan have rushed to Chettukundu after quickly winding up their programs in the district.
