On Tuesday, the local DYFI unit reportedly took out a protest march demanding justice for the victim. However, after the police started making arrests, it was revealed that a local DYFI leader, named Nikhil Mohanan (Nikhil Thaliyil) is one of the accused. A report by Asianet News had revealed that Nikhil was marching in a red jersey demanding justice for the victim.
