THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:Tension prevailed at Nedumangad on Tuesday after the BJP observed a hartal following the arrest of three of its workers.

Last week, a group of persons had barged into the CPM local committee office and resorted to vandalism. The assailants also damaged a few two-wheelers parked outside. The CPM activists in the area alleged that  BJP workers were behind the attack and they even targeted the BJP office and their workers in retaliation on the same night. A BJP worker, Al Ameen, was seriously injured and hospitalised in the attack. Later, the police arrested three BJP men Shaji, Vishnu, and Vimal in connection with the attack.

The BJP said there was a scuffle between SFI and ABVP activists over decorating the premises of the venue of the school Praveshanolsavam on June 1. During the event, a few ABVP activists were attacked by SFI activists. The BJP will take out a protest march to the Nedumangad DYSP office on Wednesday.
