The protest by Kerala Students’ Union takes a violent turn, leading to police resorting to lathi-charge.

Kerala Students’ Union (KSU) staged a protest march in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday, condemning the alleged attacks on KSU and Youth Congress activists by members of the ruling CPI(M). The police resorted to a lathi-charge to disperse the protesters, and several demonstrators were later detained. The march, organized by KSU, the student wing of the opposition Congress, was held outside the office of the Director General of Police. In a separate incident on Wednesday, the Youth Congress protested alleged manhandling at the secretariat. According to a PTI report, the trouble began when a KSU worker reportedly threw chilli powder at the police, prompting them to respond with a lathi-charge. The report stated that 15 student activists, including three with injuries requiring hospitalization, were arrested in connection with the incident. KPCC general secretary Mathew Kuzhalnadan attempted to intervene but was allegedly beaten up by the police. He criticized the use of force and claimed that the violence occurred without any provocation. Kuzhalnadan also stated that the Congress party would continue to protest. The police have filed a case against Leader of Opposition VD Satheesan, naming him as the prime accused in relation to the violence during a Youth Congress march to the state secretariat. Satheesan responded to the case by stating that he was not intimidated by the Chief Minister’s actions and would willingly go to jail along with the Congress party’s youth activists. He accused the ruling party of brutally attacking their youth for several weeks.,
