Slain ex-CPI-M leader denounces Marxists

Kozhikode (Kerala), April 14 (IANS) The wife of slain former CPI-M leader T.P. Chandrashekeran Sunday accused the CPI-M of trying to sabotage the first anniversary of his death.

Rema, a bank employee, told the media after visiting the site where a memorial erected in memory of her husband was found damaged by unidentified men overnight.

“This is the work of the CPI-M and it has got the support of the top brass,” alleged Rema.

Chandrashekeran, 51, a popular local leader in Onchiyam, was killed May 4 last year while returning home on his motorcycle. He was hacked 51 times by a group of assailants.

The trial of the case is on at a court near here. Among the accused are more than a dozen district and state leaders of the Communist Party of India Marxist.

The memorial had been put up at the site where he was murdered. It was erected by activists of the Revolutionary Marxists Party (RMP), which was founded by Chandrashekeran after he quit the CPI-M.

Police have arrested two people following the desecration.
