Police assault on a CPM worker, who black-flagged Chief Minister Oommen Chandy as part Left agitation in the solar scam, has come under sharp criticism.
CPM activist D Jayaprasad had broken the police cordon at the venue of Chandy's programme on the outskirts of the city on Wednesday. Using his black shirt as a flag, Jayaprasad jumped in front of Chandy's motorcade forcing the police to take him away and a sub-inspector was seen assaulting and treading on him.
The incident drew outrage from both the CPM and the ruling Congress-led UDF.
While Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan demanded the inspector be booked for attempt to murder, senior Congress leader V M Sudheeran termed the act barbaric.
The state Human Rights Commission has registered a case and sought report from the DGP.
