KALPETTA: The District Congress Committee will stage a blockade of the Poothadi panchayat office on Friday demanding an intensified investigation into the abduction of V.N. Sasi, vice-president of the panchayat.

DCC vice-president K.K. Viswanathan told mediapersons here on Thursdaythat activists would march to the police station on Saturday.

Mr. Viswanathan said the DCC has come to know that Mr. Sasi was admitted to a private hospital in Kozhikode by the abductors, after his health deteriorated. “When we approached the police, asking them to look in to the matter, they seemed unwilling to initiate an investigation in this direction,” he said.

C. Sherafudheen, Superintendent of Police told The Hindu on Thursday that the police had not got any information in this regard and that he would depute a team to investigate the matter on Friday..
