THRISSUR: As many as 12 persons were injured when a car, suspected to have lost control, ran into a DYFI rally at Amala, near here, on Saturday. The injured activists were admitted to Amala Medical College Hospital. None of the injured are in a serious condition, said hospital authorities.

The accident occurred in the morning when the district committee of the DYFI took out a rally to the Peramangalm police station, demanding action against the police officials who allegedly try to torpedo the Chandrabose murder case.

According to the police, the car driver Madhu, 40, of Chelakkattuvariuam House, Perinthalmanna, was taken into custody soon after the incident. The activists alleged that the driver deliberately ran his ambassador car into the rally. He had stopped the car for a while before speeding it into the crowd, he said.

The DYFI activists also damaged the car, which stopped after hitting a shop near the junction.

Tension prevailed in the area for sometime after the accident and the traffic through the busy highway was disrupted following the accident. However, the police reached the spot and diffused the tension by dissuading the activists.
