KANNUR: The hunger strike of senior Congress leader K Sudhakaran in protest against the police laxity and the CPM violence, entered the third day with the leader showing signs of tiredness. With the Congress workers and members of various organisations flowing into the venue, and the collectorate precincts turning into a Congress bastion, the Congress looks to win the first round of the battle here with the public sentiments going against the CPM.

All the Congress MLAs, MPs and senior leaders, including the KPCC president, will reach Kannur on Thursday and the future course of strike will be decided at a meeting of the leaders in the afternoon. On Wednesday, leaders Mullappally Ramachandran and N K Premachandran had visited Sudhakaran.

Sudheeran demands CBI probe

T’Puram: Former KPCC president V M Sudheeran has demanded a CBI inquiry into the murder of Youth Congress leader Shuhaib at Mattannur. In a letter to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, he said an inquiry by the Central agency was the most recommended as the people have lost faith in Kerala police. “Shuhaib’s father and his family are for a CBI inquiry. The people have lost the faith in the inquiry by the Kerala police. Hence it is better that the probe is done by the CBI,’’ he said in the letter and asked Vijayan to take steps to hand over the case to the CBI at the earliest.
