Thiruvananthapuram: CPI-M Kannur district secretary P Jayarajan, who is in the state capital attending the party’s state committee meeting told the media on Tuesday that he has been told by the Mattanoor CPI-M leaders that they have no role in the killing of Shuhaib, a thirty-year-old Youth Congress worker, who was murdered in Kannur late Monday night.
Jayarajan said that there has been no issue between the CPI-M and the Congress party in the region.
“We will look into what has happened and if any of our party members are involved, then appropriate action will be taken.
“But I have been told by the Mattanoor CPI-M leaders that they have no role in Shuhaib’s murder,” said Jayarajan.
The Congress party is observing a dawn-to-dusk shut down in protest of the murder in the district, but allowed vehicles to ply.
