Thiruvananthapuram: CPI(M) led LDF Opposition members staged a walkout from the Assembly on Tuesday in protest against government's 'failure' to take action against a police officer who allegedly beat up a CPI-M MLA on March 14.

MLA K Dasan, representing Quilandy Assembly segment, raised the matter through a submission and created a flutter by producing a blood stained shirt which he claimed was due to injuries sustained when police 'manhandled' him.

The incident occurred when he went to the police station at his constituency on their request to settle a dispute between two parties.

Not satisfied with Chief Minister Oommen Chandy's reply that he had asked for a detailed report from police on the incident, LDF members led by opposition leader V S Achuthanandan trooped out of the House.

The opposition was also irked by Chandy's poser to Dasan whether the blood on the shirt he had brought to the Assembly was his own.

Achuthanandan said Chandy's reference amounted to 'insulting' the MLA and demanded immediate suspension of the police officer responsible.
