Protest: The police try to disperse the Democratic Youth Front of India activists who took out a march to the Police Commissioner's office in Kozhikode on Wednesday.

Kozhikode: Thirteen persons, including eight police personnel, were injured when a march taken out by activists of the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) to the office of the Commissioner of Police here on Wednesday turned violent.

Around 500 DYFI activists staged a march in the evening in protest against the police action on the activists of the Students Federation of India (SFI) and All India Students Federation (AISF) in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday. The pro-Left student activists were agitating over the issue of self-financing college admissions “giving advantage to private managements.”

The injured activists included DYFI district president P.A. Mohammed Riyas and State committee members M. Gireesh, P. Ahamed Koya, M. Giresh and South Block president K. Bijeesh.

Manoj, Bineesh, Rajesh, Babumon, Binash Riyas, Sudheesh Kumar and Shiju were the injured police personnel. They were admitted to hospital, the police said.

The trouble started when the marchers attempted to breach the temporary police barricades that were erected in front of the office at around 6.15 p.m. The agitators then resorted to pelting stones at the police personnel. The police used water cannons and teargas to disperse the unruly agitators. Finally, they had to resort to a lathi-charge.

A soft drink shop at Mananchira got damaged in the agitation.

The Kasaba police have registered a case in connection with the incident.
