Kannur: An RSS leader was today attacked and injured allegedly by CPI-M activists at Kankol in Payanoor in Kannur district, police said.
He has been admitted to a hospital here and his condition is stated to be serious, they said.
RSS alleged that a group of CPI-M workers attacked Ajit with iron rods when a meeting of the saffron organisation was in progress late in the evening.
The district has been witnessing a series of clashes between CPI-M and RSS-BJP workers after the May 16 Assembly polls which saw the CPI-M-led LDF government coming to power in the state.
Meanwhile, in the southern part of the state, a flag and flagpost of CPI-M was damaged allegedly by RSS-BJP workers at Paravoor in Kollam district.
On January 18, a 53-year-old BJP worker was stabbed to death at Andaloor in Dharmadam, the constituency of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
Six CPI(M)workers have been arrested in this connection.
