The Kerala High Court on Friday took suo motu cognizance of the strike announced by radical Islamist outfit Popular Front of India (PFI) and subsequent sporadic incidents of violence in the state. The court said the strike was banned earlier by it and destruction of public property cannot be accepted. Several incidents of violence have come to the fore during the strike to protest the arrest of the leaders of the Popular Front of India by the NIA.
