      After the murder of two BJP workers at New Mahe allegedly by a CPI(M) killer gang on May 28 and three days of widespread violence and looting from the very next day by Marxist marauders in the Thalipparambu area, an uneasy calm is prevailing in the traditionally violence-prone areas of Kannur, known as the communist killing field of Kerala.

      Even top police officials admit that violence might erupt any moment in the sensitive areas and they do not rule out the possibility of tragic incidents in the most unexpected places also as in the case of New Mahe, which had remained relatively calm even in situations when unrest had peaked in the district in the past. They are also getting unconfirmed Intelligence reports of systematic preparation by the Marxists for surprise attacks on traditional foes like the BJP and the Muslim League.
