According to reports, activists from both sides sustained injuries during the clash and lathi charge. The clash broke out in front of the CPM party office in Manarcad.

Congress is alleging that the CPM attempted to attack the houses of Youth Congress activists. However, DYFI activists are claiming that Youth Congress members were the ones who attacked them first. The conflict escalated as the activists of both sides attacked each other's houses. Youth Congress leaders such as Shafi Parambil, VT Balram, Rahul Mamkootathil, and others have reached the place.
