A day after the CPI(M) district committee office was attacked allegedly by Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) workers, the house of party district secretary for Thiruvananthapuram, Anavoor Nagappan, came under attack by unidentified persons. This is the third consecutive attack on CPI(M) workers and offices in the state capital since Friday, August 26. Police said that stones were hurled at the house of Nagappan late on Saturday night, damaging the house’s window panes and a car. “We are examining the CCTV visuals from the area. Not many people travel from those areas late at night. We hope to nab the culprits soon,” a senior police official told PTI.

Meanwhile, Thampanoor police on Sunday, August 28, arrested three activists of the ABVP, the students wing of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), for allegedly attacking the CPI(M) district committee office in the early hours of Saturday. Police said that the arrests were made after examining CCTV footage. “The accused were arrested from a hospital nearby,” police said. The accused were admitted to the hospital on Friday after they allegedly attacked the procession of the CPI(M) on Friday, injuring Left party councillor Gayathri Babu. Kerala Minister V Sivankutty on Sunday hit out at the BJP-RSS, and alleged that the attacks were planned by Sangh outfits to create  unrest in the state ahead of the Onam festive season.
