    • For the first time, Popular Front of India (PFI) has come out in the open in support to the Dalit Human Rights Movement (DHRM). PFI state president Nazarudin Elamaram, state general secretary P. Abdul Hameed and state treasurer K.H. Nazar said that the PFI decided to express solidarity with the DHRM in view of what they called `Dalit hunt’ by the police, RSS, Shiv Sena and CPM workers at the Thoduve colony near Varkala.


      They alleged that violence was being unleashed on weaker sections by branding them as `Dalit extremism’.  
    •  In the name of the murder of Sivaprasad in Varkala not only the Dalits in Thoduve colony but Dalits in all Dalit colonies in the district and nearby districts were being harassed and false cases foisted upon them, they said.
