Kottayam: Two RSS activists have been arrested in connection with the attack at Malappuram press club.
Shibu and Dilip Kumar were among the 10 persons booked in the case. They were arrested from their houses. The remaining would be held soon, police said.
The attack was a retribution to the ‘Chandrika’ daily photographer taking pictures of the RSS activists assaulting a two-wheeler rider during a protest rally by RSS against recent attack on RSS office.
The photographer, Fuvad Saneem, and reporter Shahabas Vellil ran away when the RSS activists attacked them and took refuge in the Press Club. The activists followed them and assaulted them in the club.
Saneem suffered injuries and his mobile phone was snatched from him. He was admitted to hospital with injuries.
