    Kochi - Indications that the relative calm presently
    prevailing in Kerala's politically volatile Kannur
    district, where two brutal murders took place in CPI(M)-
    RSS clashes in October alone, may not last for long came
    out on Tuesday, even before 24 hours were over after an
    all-party peace meet decided on measures to check
    violence, with the Marxists rejecting some of the
    proposals put forward by the police for ensuring peace.

    "We reject the proposal (the Kannur district police
    chief has put forward) that the measures the police
    adopt in the name of peace should not be responded
    against because all police officers are not impartial in
    their actions. It is necessary to respond against
    officials who act with bias," said CPI(M)'s Kannur
    district secretary P Jayarajan in a Facebook post on

    Jayarajan's statement was in response to the decisions
    taken at the district level all-party peace meet
    convened in Kannur on Monday by District Collector Mir
    Mohammad ali as directed by Chief Minister Pinarayi
    Vijayan in the context of the murders of local CPI(M)
    leader Mohanan at Pathiriyad and RSS-BJP activist Ramith
    at Pinarayi on October 10 and 12 respectively.

    The meeting decided that a cross-party panel -- yet to be
    constituted -- would visit the house of the victim in the
    case of a murder taking place in the district in the
    future. Every political party would have three members in
    this panel and the parties should specify the names of
    their representatives for the panel in three weeks, the
    district collector said after the meeting.
