Maoists threaten to kill Kerala CM, case registered

Thrissur (Kerala), April 27: Maoists on Friday issued a poster calling for death to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, saying he has failed the adivasis. An officer from Pazhayannur police station near here bordering Palakkad district said the poster was stuck at a workshop. It read: “Vijayan’s head will be cut off.” As the police could not register a case on its own, it moved the Wadakanchery Magisterial Court. A probe has begun. The poster was reportedly issued by the “Kerala chapter of Naxalbari”. The contents of the poster touches upon the custodial torture and later death of a youth and the beating to death of an adivasi youth by a group of people near a forest area. (IANS)
