Police on Sunday started preliminary investigation into the controversial speech delivered by CPM Idukki district secretary M.M Mani.
The follow up action will be decided after a thorough evaluation of the speech. Meanwhile, Mani himself has expressed regret over the speech.
Mani, a senior functionary of the party had said there had been instances of the party eliminating its foes. Mani’s speech came at a time when the party is on the defensive with the arrest of some of its activists in Kozhikode and Kannur districts in connection with the murder of Marxist rebel and RMP leader TP Chandrasekharan.
