Posters criticising Radhakrishnan and supporting the Kannur MP in the name of Youth Congress were also seen in many areas.
On October 31 Congress workers led by Sudhakaran staged a protest before the police station demanding action against a sub-inspector for allegedly assaulting a party local functionary at the station.
Police had also registered a case against Sudhakaran and Congress activists for obstructing the official functioning of the police personnel and also threatening them.

The probe report said the SI had followed due procedure under the Police Act in taking Youth Congress activists into custody.
