Nilambur: Janadipathya Mahila Association activists on Saturday waved black flags at Electricity Minister Aryadan Muhammed who was here to visit the home of C Radha, the 49-year old woman who was murdered by the minister’s former personal assistant and his accomplice at the Congress Block office here earlier in February.
There was mild squabble in the area when the Congress workers gathered tried to block the Association workers from protesting against the minister.
An association activist, Sunanda, was injured in the clash. She was later taken to Nilambur Taluk Hospital.
The incident occurred near Radha’s residence in the premises of United Club here around 10 am.
The minister, who was on his way to the victim’s home, stopped on the way when he spotted her kin and got off the car to talk to them. But the Association activists who had gathered in the area on a prior knowledge of the visit, disrupted the minster and waved black flags at him.
The minister, though held talks with the kin, went back without visiting Radha’s home.
The body of Radha, a sweeper at the Congress Blaock office here, was found in a pond at Chulliyode near Nilambur last Sunday, tied up in a gunny bag. She had been missing since February 5, and family members had reported the matter to the police.
The police arrested 38-year-old Biju Nair, the personal assistant of Aryadan Muhammed, and K. Shamsudeen in connection with the case. The duo had confessed to the crime.
