New Delhi: CPI(M) MP M B Rajesh on Thursday alleged that he was assaulted by policemen during a protest here while demanding removal of Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman P J Kurien for his alleged involvement in the Suryanelli rape case.

Rajesh and his colleagues were marching towards Parliament House as part of the protest organised by DYFI, SFI and AIDWA when they were stopped near Rail Bhavan. The protesters tried to move ahead but were picked up by police.
"We were taken into a police vehicle. I was pushed down and kicked inside the van. I was saved by protesters," Rajesh told PTI.
