Bangalore, Mar 10 (UNI) Continuing the attack on the CPI(M) over Kannur violence, suspected members of pro-Hindu organisations attacked the home of CPI(M) State Secretary V K Nair here last night.
Speaking to UNI today, Mr Nair said six masked intruders barged into his house in Kallaturu Layout in Gangammanagudi Police Limits when his wife was alone. They asked about him and then simply started smashing articles using iron rods.
''They spoke about recent Kannur incidents and about Marxism. They forced my wife sit in a corner and then went on smashing things in the house, whatever was breakable.
''This is part of the nation-wide attack on CPM by pro-Hindu activists,'' the newly elected State Secretary alleged.
Mr Nair's wife said the masked intruders took away a laptop.
''First a youth came and knocked the door and asked for Mr Nair.
Later the six men came after some time.
''They asked me to sit in a corner and went on breaking things,'' she said.
Police said sniffer dogs and fingerprint experts had been sent to the place and a preliminary inquiry conducted. However, no one had been arrested so far.
The attack on CPM leader's house comes in the wake of clashes between CPM and RSS activists in Thalassery in Kannur District of North Kerala, which left seven persons dead in the last two weeks.
Alleged BJP and RSS activists had attacked CPM headquarters in New Delhi yesterday.
