HASSAN: The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has condemned the brutal attacks on youths from different States, by activists of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena on Sunday. The youths were appearing for an examination for recruitment to the Railways. Releasing a copy of the statement issued by the party here on Monday, district CPI (M) secretary Dharmesh said that over 50 young men were severely beaten and were not allowed to sit for the exam. This was a direct assault on the Constitution, which the Government of Maharashtra was duty-bound to protect. — Staff Correspondent
