Congress-led UDF opposition members today walked out of the Kerala Assembly, protesting the 'indifferent' attitude of LDF government in dealing with the cases of attack on police stations and police personnel, allegedly by CPI(M) and DYFI activsits.
Replying to an adjournment motion notice, on the alleged attack by a DYFI worker on a Sub-Inspector at Vadakkekara police station near Kochi yesterday, State Law Minister M Vijayakumar denied the UDF allegation that the number of police station attack cases was on the increase after LDF came to power.
Vijayakumar said government would take stern action against those, who attacked police stations irrespective of their party affiliations.
In Vadakkekara case, the DYFI activist Fazil Rehaman had been arrested under non-bailable offence and remanded to judical custody.
Vijayakumar said, Sub-Inspector T V Shibu's suffered minor injury following a scuffle with Rehaman over settling a petty case.
V D Satheesan (Cong) said the incident was the 33rd police station attack case involving CPI(M) workers.
Satheesan said Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishan should quit the post as he failed to protect even the police personnel in the state.
Before the walkout, Deputy leader in the house, G Karthikeyan said law and order situation in the state was worsening day by day.
