Seven Left activists have been arrested, including a local CPI(M)  leader.

On January 28, the seven men allegedly barged into Josana Sibby's house and thrashed her husband over a land dispute. When his wife, four months pregnant, tried to protect him,  they allegedly kicked her in the stomach.

The 28-year-old started bleeding and was taken to hospital, where she was forced to have an abortion, NDTV said.
