 Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday termed the violence in the state during the hartal called by the Popular Front of India (PFI) a day ago, as a premeditated one and said the culprits will not be spared.

Vijayan, while addressing a senior police officers association’s event here, condemned the violence and said it resulted in the destruction of public and private properties in the state.

”In yesterday’s hartal, led by the PFI, Kerala witnessed pre-meditated violence. The state witnessed an organized and violent interference from their part resulting in huge loss to the state,” Vijayan said.

The Chief Minister said it was an attempt to destroy the peaceful atmosphere of the state and that the culprits will not be spared.

In near-simultaneous raids across the country, a multi-agency operation spearheaded by the NIA on September 22 led to the arrest of 106 activists of the PFI in 11 states for allegedly supporting terror activities in the country, officials had said.

The PFI had declared hartal in Kerala on September 23 and the state witnessed widespread violence.
