Eight activists belonging to the Fraternity Movement were sent to 14 days of judicial custody on Tuesday, a day after they led a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act in Kozhikode.

This comes a day after the Kerala police resorted to lathi charge on members of the Fraternity Movement for carrying out a protest march against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) on Monday, March 11.

Nine activists were booked and among them, eight were arrested. Six students, who sustained injuries, are undergoing treatment at Beach Hospital in Kozhikode.

The protest happened outside Akashvani office (All India Radio) in Kozhikode hours after the Union government notified the rules of much-criticised CAA.

Fraternity Movement leaders alleged that around a hundred members were attacked by the police without any provocation. Women students were harassed by the male police personnel, videos accessed by Maktoob showed.
