Thane: An irate mob of suspected CPM
activists from tribal Talasari taluka allegedly attacked a BJP
leader from Thane district, police said today.
The mob armed with lethal weapons attacked Louis Kakkad,
who has been active in the growth of the BJP in Talasari and
routing the CPM, last evening.
BJP and CPM are said to be at loggerheads due to various
reasons and the recent Zilla Parishad and Panchayat elections
has aggravated the situation.
According to the complaint lodged by the party office
bearer, he and his car was attacked with stones in the
Dapchari Thakurpada hamlet by the mob including Vivek Halad,
Umesh Halad and Raja Dumada.
The CPM activists were enraged as Kakkad worked for BJP in
the taluka and helped it grow in the region, it said.
The Talasari police have registered an offence under
various sections against the trio and the mob.
However, no arrests have been made so far.
