PFI smells conspiracy behind Kerala arrests

By TCN News,

New Delhi: Popular Front of India smells “conspiracy” behind the arrest of Popular Front workers engaged in physical fitness exercises in Kannur, Kerala, as a part of its annual Healthy People,Healthy Nation campaign.

In a statement, OMA Salam, the General Secretary of the organization said that the police had put the draconian provisions of much maligned UAPA on those arrested which is clear sign of the police bias against Muslim youths.

The district of Kannur is notorious for physical violence, arms training and bomb making in which several CPIM and RSS cadres too have been rounded up.

However, PFI alleged, “When police raid CPIM or RSS training camps they book them under normal laws. There strong suspicion that a section of the police is working not only to harass but also to cook evidence against the organization.”
